Nordens Plads Civic Centre

Frederiksberg is home to one of Denmark's tallest buildings, Domus Vista. Located on the ground floor, the existing library has been expanded into a civic centre that provides a gathering place for clubs, associations, and citizens. As part of a series of social initiatives, the focus is on strengthening citizens' ownership of the area, and the civic centre contributes greatly to this by being developed as a kind of living room outside the home. The centre is designed to accommodate a broad target group of citizens of all ages, and everyone should be able to find a favourite chair.

Block colours on walls and surfaces emphasise the 1960s character of the building, while the furnishings are more subdued. Library shelving divides the large space into different areas, and at the heart of the community centre, a characterful custom-designed piece of furniture is placed as a place to stay for the librarian, who has an overview of the entire space and can create a space for themselves at the same time.
