floor plan

Sõmeru Community Centre combines parish administration, library and a club with a hall. The interior and exterior are intermingled, creating a park-like structure – cosy gardens as concentrated pieces of nature offer a counterpart to sparse density of the surrounding environment. The community centre is single-storeyed, undulating roofline is a result of varying heights of the rooms.

    loved the exterior of the building! and the way the building is integrated within the surrounding. Also the integration of the interior and the exterior of the building within the surrounding, giving the user a better sense of enjoyment while using it!
