The Culture House Eemhuis, designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architecten and located in Amersfoort, The Netherlands, is a cultural centre that combines the city library, regional archives, an arts school, and exhibition spaces. At the ground floor, the public square becomes a covered plaza, the foyer of the exhibition centre. At the other end, the plaza steps up gradually to form a terraced library. On the top of the stairs the library spills into a vast open space overlooking the city. Above it hovers the archive volume that forms the ceiling of this space. The attic of the building houses the arts school. The three arts departments (theatre & dance, visual arts and music) are each expressed separately as cantilevered beams that crown the complex.
