Designing the interior space for a modern library that intends to accommodate new-age technology, latest browsing infrastructure yet maintain the age-old bookshelves was a challenging design brief that our team delivered efficiently. The spaces inside the library building were demarcated such that the sanctity of large reading halls was maintained, while also making ample space for browsing stations and reading pods and carving lively spaces for informal reading and interaction. The centrally placed staircase provides access to all parts of the library. The acoustics have been specifically attended to, to maintain the ‘quiet’ of the library. Considering the extreme temperatures that north India experiences, the air conditioning takes care of cooling and also heating to provide a comfortable study zone for students and faculty round the year. A lively café, informal seating along the corridors and an interactive information desk energizes the ambience.
