ROZET, the library hotspot
A place where people can discover, relax, meet, expand and develop. That’s how the Rozet can be summed up.
The Rozet building is where the central branch of the Bibliotheek Arnhem [Arnhem library] is located. Besides the library, it is also the location of the Kunstbedrijf (the Art Company) the Kunstuitleen ToArt (ToArt Art leasing), the Volksuniversiteit Arnhem (Arnhem Community College) and the Erfgoedcentrum (Heritage Centre) a language school and some caterers. By bringing together these disciplines, the Rozet bustles with activities in the fields of knowledge, culture and education. The building attracts more than 1 million visitors a year.
The Neutelings Riedijk architect bureau designed the building that is situated between the Oude and Nieuwe Oeverstraat in Arnhem. Their vision is that the building serves as an extension of the street. This is symbolised by the enormous staircase that passes through the centre of the building connecting the several cultural institutes. As well as the connective element of the staircase, it is also a meeting place. Specially created wide areas serve as seating or work places and there are various public areas bordering the staircase, suitable for readings or exhibitions. www.rozet.nl/ (dutch only)
