Ballyfermot Public Library, UK

A living library with practical and smaller intimate spaces
Parents and children are a particularly important user group to the library and the aim was to make it a welcoming and special space for them. It has to be a balance between independence, play and exploration of the children with the necessities of safety and observation. The furniture selection is dynamic, interactive and novel to engage children and give them an experience that exceeds all expectations. It is crucial that the children's section of the library genuinely caters for their needs, rather than just beeing a smaller version of the adult space.
Large scale graphics are used throughout the library to add local interest and excitement.
