The concept of a hybrid school library space. It would allow children of different ages to engage in educational and research projects, and in the evening, residents of the area could use this space as a coworking.

The library consists of spaces smoothly flowing into each other. The possibility of dividing into children’s and adult areas is still preserved. Space functions differently at different times of the day. During the day, it mainly belongs to school students, who conduct projects and research work here, read books, and relax. In the afternoon, some of the spaces function as co-working spaces for area residents. The central core connecting all the rooms is the reading room. It can be accessed directly from almost any room. Throughout the library are allocated small cozy nooks. They are designed for solitude reading or work that requires concentration. They create a «blanket house» atmosphere. The fabric vaults cover the lamp, providing soft diffused light.
