Project
Izmailovskaya Library, part of Lermontov Central Library

Category
Best Design Project for Library

About the project
The library is located between three railway stations — the Vitebsk, the Baltic, and the Warsaw ones, and that’s why the new facility was designed as a station house. In particular, this was how the rooms within got their names -  the Help Desk, the Waiting Room, the Parenting Room, the Classic Platform. Decorated with dedicated designer panel images, the rooms also feature quotes by famous writers about traveling, as well as rare pictures from the collection of the Russian Railway Transport Central Museum
