In an innovative way to further Oslo’s sustainability goals, the Deichman Bjørvika library has opened its’ doors on June 18, although with social distancing measures. The designer Atelier Oslo and LundHagem architects unveiled the state-of-the-art cultural landmark beside the waterfront near Oslo Opera House. This library is specifically designed as an ultra-low energy-consuming building in accordance with housing standards, and the fifth floor offers a wonderful view of Oslofjord and its’ islands topped with the greenery of the forest. 450,000 books are there for us to enjoy relaxing spaces, but the building also provides facilities such as a cinema, open workshops, gaming zones, and cafés. Visitors can also make podcasts, learn to play an instrument, learn to sew, and use 3D printers.
