The Library of the Future is a linking mechanism at the urban scale. The new building connects to the steep hillside of Observatory Hill via a bridge-like construction.

This connection allows library visitors to access the historical Stockholm Observatory directly. A special place for meditation and relax is reserved between the new building and the hillside is a Garden Plaza.

The main entry of the building reflects the new urban conditions in the area, and is therefore directed toward Odenplan Plaza and the shopping and public transit links found there.
