A diamond for Minsk

Architecture office: Viktor Kramarenko and Michail Vinogradov, Minsk

This building, which was opened in 2005, is an architectural landmark and national symbol for the Belarusian city of Minsk. The diamond-shaped glass construction is reminiscent of Rem Koolhaas' Seattle Library. The 80m Euro building features a spectacular viewing platform at 72 m and almost 2,000 reading desks in various rooms; it also features a media and conference centre.

GEZE installed a Slimdrive SCR circular sliding door in the library’s entrance lobby. This 360° solution enhances the building with more light and space and makes the room generous in every respect.
