SHL wins competition to transform and extend Helsingborg City Library!
With emphasis on creating a strong cohesion between the existing Helsingborg City Library and a new extension carved into the sloping park terrain, our proposal draws inspiration from the site's inherent spatial, material, and immaterial qualities and its unique location in Stadsparken.
The transformation involves reimagining the 1965 library building, the atrium courtyard added in the mid-90s, and the incorporation of two new structures with a vision to support the Helsingborg City Library's role as a cultural beacon in the city. The new library will provide residents with a platform for cultural exchange and meaningful dialogues through shared experiences and spaces for a broad range of activities.
