Idrettsveien, 9800 Vadsø
The house is built in a concentrated block, the walls rendered and painted white, with arched windows and a hipped roof covered with overlapping tiles. The middle of the roof is crowned with a tower-like ridge turret. The building as a whole, and its details, has a neo-classicist stylistic expression that is reminiscent of the 1920s.

The building was built to house the Finnmark Library's collection
the institution was founded in 1892.
