The municipal library stands in the courtyard of the municipal house in Statenice.

It consists of an older house and a new tiny extension extending its usable area.

The light wooden building of the extension rolls together with the boundary of the plot and is clad with folded sheet metal roofing from pre-weathered titanium zinc. The plate mirrors the sky and the shadows of mature ash trees.

The existing part was renovated in the original spirit.

In front of the library, which will also be used for leisure activities, meetings and children's clubs, we have restored the garden with a bench and a fruit tree.

Inside, above the entrance and study, there is a low floor accessible by a spiral staircase. The main part of the library is elevated to the truss space, where daylight penetrates through skylights. The space is lined with tall library shelves made of light birch plywood. The older masonry was stripped of plaster and provided with a lime facade paint.

The original house is a brick building, an extension is made of timber. The extension is partly based on ground screws to protect the root system of nearby trees.

The library has electric floor heating. A hybrid system of wall recuperation without the need for central distribution is used for ventilation.
