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.
