The competition for the new service building of the Herzog August Library in Wolfenbüttel has been decided. The jury has awarded two 3rd prizes - one goes to the design by 4a Architekten and Transsolar. The new service building fits into the historical building stock between the library and the magazine building in an identity-forming and self-confident way. Despite the large room programme, the building does not take centre stage, but rather picks up on the language of the location. Room edges and alignments create an independent, self-contained formal language with a defining character and strong address formation.
