Station Culture

Rumia, Poland is a small city just outside of Gdansk. When the local government decided to revitalize the old railway station, they decided to incorporate the public library in the project. The combined transit station/cultural center has now won the 2016 Library Interior Design Award for interior space use.

The building renewal, carried out by Gdansk-based design studio Sikora Wnetrza, cleverly connects the three story library directly with the station waiting room to encourage passengers to borrow books, or just hang out and read.
