amsterdam’s new library


Amsterdam has a new library and it is gorgeous. The building on the restructured Oosterdokseiland (near Amsterdam Central Station) is definetely worth a visit when you are in the neighbourhood. Jo Coenen is the architect of this public library, which is the largest in The Netherlands. Coenen has created a refined transitional area between the upper and lower floors by using a raised plinth. The reading and study rooms are like terraces and are placed around large and tall empty spaces.


The library is open to the public seven days a week from 10 o’clock in the morning to 10 o’clock at night. The address is Oosterdokskade 143 in Amsterdam.
