Points of View, library for blind and visually impaired people

Best Design Project for Library

About the project
The library of 700 m2 is located in the old premises of the Pyotr Society of Alms for the Poor built in 1890. It is mainly intended for the visually impaired citizens. This is why yellow is the highlight of the interiors, as it helps to navigate throughout the facility. Large-scale embossed images of St. Petersburg are placed on the walls. The facility comprises 9 rooms, including an audio room, a children room, a coworking, a technical hub, and a Braille books collection.
