SHL wins competition to transform and extend Helsingborg City Library!

Helsingborg Main moneyshot exterior 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.
