Dr. Franc Sušnik Library

Arrea, Studio AKKA / 2003
LOCATION: Na gradu 1, 2390 Ravne na Koroškem

Dr. Franc Sušnik library occupies the old Ravne castle, but because of lack of space it was allocated additional spaces in the outbuildings of the castle. The new spaces needed renovation but they had to remain unchanged from the outside. From architectural as well as from landscape point of view Ravne castle complex is the most significant ambient in the whole region. New additions are marked by dark metal frames that highlight different historic periods of the complex.
