The concept was to mix traditional library atmosphere in a modern interpretation. To create a physical language of litterature based studies.

The bookshelves creates spaces within the space, so that they not only contain the amount of books required but generates an identity for the space. This furthermore ensures a modulation of privacy/intimacy/calmness, so that the student can choose how and where to study, according to desire.

Almost all the furniture have been designed for this particular assignment.
