Anna Amalia Library, Weimar

The extension has storage for over one million books, but also an information centre, a large open-access section and comfortable reading areas. A "book cube" set in the old courtyard and the underground storage areas form the centrepiece of the facility.

Additional value

  • Compliance with the tight budget despite the increased construction expenditure in the listed building (extension)
