Konstantin Paustovsky Central Library

Best Design Project for Library

About the project
This library is a place where every visitor can enjoy reading or working, a place that people feel like coming back to. Special storage systems were designed to make operation of the venue more efficient.  Children’s areas were planned for parents to have some time for themselves. Noise-attenuating panels of distinguished design were installed on the ceilings – they can be seen from the outside and attract many views.

The zone with flexible layout is intended for different events and includes a stage.   Groups can use the dedicated meeting room.
