Rozet Bibliotheek, Arnhem

  • January 2015

Rozet is the name of the Arts and Culture Centre which was opened in the city of Arnhem in 2013. It is the home for several cultural and educational institutions like Heritage and Art Centre, Community College, a restaurant and a library. The interior is eccentric with a very central staircase combined with public galleries. The aesthetics of the building is of high quality. The media collection is very good but not so well exposed. The acoustic is problematic. Especially a noisy slide for kids in the middle of the library is disturbing. The access is not easy. There are too few and small lifts for the building with several floors, many activities and a lot of visitors. There are rather high fees for users. FOUR stars: Very good.
