Kulautuva has been a popular resort for nearby city dwellers. However, during time Kulautva has lost some of its charms. We envisioned a new public centre that reflects the history and offers new possibilities for the locals and visitors.

As a basis for our proposal, we chose to respect an existing former club-diner building, but give it a contemporary attitude – dark colours were changed to bright, derelict structures were replaced with new modern elements.

Functions inside were zoned around the main entrance hall serving as a public passage through the library to a forest behind the building.
