SEP Architekten
Date Built
Completed 2015
The "1001libraries.wordpress.com" website describes this library building on the campus of University of Salzburg as newly built and especially attractive.  "Its inventory comprises around 400.000 media on Romance Language and Literature, English and American Studies, Slavonic Studies, German Language and Literature, Linguistics, Educational Science, Art History, Music and Dance Studies.  The library consists of three different levels and is fully air-conditioned. The floor is made of black linoleum, interrupted by red carpets demarcating the work areas. The architects’ color concept of black, white and red dominates the interior design down to the smallest detail, for example the labeling of the book shelves."

"Apart from the architectural beauty of our library, the location of the library building is also noteworthy. Set right in the center of Salzburg’s picturesque Nonnberg district, breathtaking Alpine views and beautiful touristic sights surround the library."
