Höganäs is a charming town in southern Sweden facing the sea. The proposal shows how the existing library could be transformed into a new cultural center, simply by developing the building. The library currently rents space in a housing block, hence one of the great challenges of the proposal was to find a sustainable owner structure and a clearly public character.

The housing developments will be deeply affected by the proximity to water and the sharing of this resource. Continue reading Elding Oscarson
