Zentral- und Hochschulbibliothek Luzern

The cross-section of the building is designed so that, on entering the premises, visitors sense the full impact of the building’s height. Daylight floods right through to the ground floor from skylights along the eastern elevation. The reading areas and workstations are located along these new galleries. A new additional stairway connects the ground floor with the basement level. A light channel along the western façade illuminates the workspaces and the special collection, creating a continuous open-plan space inside the remodelled building and interconnecting each of the storeys. The spacious design makes the open-hand library feel bright and friendly, in keeping with the modern postulate of sun, light and air.
