Behind The ScenesThe structure of LocHal Public Library in 1932 was used as a locomotive hangar. Initially, the structure was intended to be demolished, but later it got transformed into a public space.
Current Utilisation of HangarPresently, the LocHal Public Library of Tilburg, Netherlands also shares its space and facilities with different co-working spaces and art organisations. In addition to this, the Library is also used to organise lectures and public events. The optimal utilisation of hangar and its multipurpose usage impressed the panel of judges at the World Architecture Festival 2019.
