An old railway station which turned into a public library in Rumia, northern Poland, has just won the Single Space Design category of the 2016 Library Interior Design Awards. It is the only project from Europe which has been recognized in this year's awards.

That is absolutely fantastic. Nothing more to say, but Poland should be shouting about this from the rooftops - it's exactly how to revitalise old infrastructure for the common good.

Maybe I'm not getting it but the design leaves me somewhat underwhelmed. It looks like a local Empik store

Thank you Mr Wiech. I will go and have a Butchers and report back to the forum. PS Are you sure it's Rumia railway station? I am there every Sunday for work and it's younger than I am - well not young then...but concrete and not red brick.

If you're based around there, just ask.
