Sang-Uk & Heeyun has shared with us their entry for the AWR Copenhagen New Modern Library Competition. Centered around park, sea, and the city, the undulating ribbed library aims to connect to its surroundings seamlessly. “The form of building reflects the idea of continuous and extended circulation from everywhere to everywhere,” says Sang-Uk & Heeyun.

“Like a traditional building typology in Denmark, the new library features a courtyard… The facade, roof, courtyard and skylight are all made of one integrated system. This integrated system allows abundant and filtered daylight into the space to make delightful atmosphere.”

Public space, a spacious entrance hall, lecture and multimedia rooms, a bookstore, cafe and locker are all located on the ground floor. Additional library and reading space is located on the second floor - complete with filtered daylight and panoramic city views. 

As Sang-Uk & Heeyun describes, “[The library’s] relaxed atmosphere in the middle of nature reminds unique Danish culture ‘HYGGE’.”
