Modern German Design Goes for the Gold - Library by architecture firm FF Architekten

In a country where history is ever-present in modern art, architecture and life, German architecture firm FF Architekten has combined the old and the new in their striking design for the unique Luckenwalde Library. Located in the town of Luckenwalde, this cool, contemporary structure incorporates the town’s original rail station, which is found alongside the new, most-modern addition – a golden rhomboid. The rail station’s classic walls and ceilings have been preserved, and the space updated with new furnishings. Abutting the traditional structure, the whimsical, contemporary cube houses a youth center and a children’s library, offering a quirky location for learning and lounging with a good book.
