Ribs of Books

For the new Vennesla Library, Norwegian architects Helen & Hard developed a combination of structure, furniture and interior in one architectural element: the timber “rib”. These multi-functional curved structures give the generously open space a striking consistent aesthetic, and also serve as book storage and personal study zones nestled along the perimeter. The architectural elements help encourage the library to be used as a space for knowledge, connection or personal reflection.
