“a testament to the extraordinary talent, innovative vision, and exceptional dedication to libraries and architecture from the fjcstudio team”

Jindabyne Library receives AILA’s Small Public Library Award.

The new carbon-neutral Library for Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains combines two materials and assembly systems that connect the building with its mountain lakeside location. Sustainable timber from local forests which were damaged by fire formed the CLT panels.

The most notable element of this unique library is its ability to be disassembled and relocated. Here is a library which can be reused, relocated and repurposed. With thanks to our client Snowy Monaro Regional Council, our Design Team partnership with Built, TTW and JHA, and the support given to the project by State Library NSW and NSW State Government.
