Our mission was to create a space that gives value to the experience of reading. A design-intelligent space was created for the bookshop and library granting value to the reading experience. Our design proposal focuses on creating a space that wraps the reader in.

The bookshelves attend more that just their basic function and were designed to simulate a dome that plays with the visual perspective.The stands incorporate a color gradient finish that attributes depth. The illuminated half circle found in the back wall simulates the vanishing point of the structure, creating a perfect balance between color and perspective.
