Around this library Ipiña+Nieto Architects have placed white painted eucalyptus wooden furniture that contains facilities such as reception, kitchenette, study areas, restrooms, storage rooms and circulations, thus resulting in a more flexible central space.
Due to natural lighting requirements, working areas as classrooms and management offices are placed in both facades of the building overlooking the city, while separated from the library by the wooden furniture.
The search of a visual depth without losing the sight of the whole inhabited space makes the plant of the project ‘play’ with visuals and the vanishing points. This always gives a clear perception of the complete plant of the building and an awareness of both glass fronts and, therefore, of both orientations and luminosity.
