Located in the centre of Murska Sobota, the new library building was to hold several collections: literature, monographs, periodicals and materials of regional importance, all with different levels of accessibility. The project proposed a scheme with a public vertical core, dividing the floor plan into private (staff offices) and more public areas (access to books, reading places). More guarded collections would be stored further from the core on each floor and higher up from the entrance point. The main volume is characterised by two elements: a glazed northern facade provides ample natural light while southern facade and the roof are enveloped in an "open book": a sheath of metal panels, printed with various texts, protects the volume like the covers protect the contents of a book.
