Best Design Project for Library

About the project

Renovation project for the library built in 1985.  In the 1990s, many of its windows and doors were boarded up, but in 2023 all the windows were unboarded, and the enfilade was opened, too.  

The right section is intended for children’s studios, and the left offers different meanings.  The stained glass window in the book storage makes one think of mysterious corridors in monastery libraries.
