Located in Spijkenisse, the Netherlands the Book Mountain by MVRDV is a truly unconventional library.

With its impressive height, the shelving inside this pyramid construction is any bookworm’s dream. You can literally walk among this mountainous construction to make for a magical library experience that enhances the research and reading processes. The shelving construction boasts spiraling staircases, pathways and terraces, making it entirely book-centric.

The book tower integrates the reception counter and is entirely fireproof and economic. The use of space is certainly an attractive facet of this bookish design. It completely takes advantage of the pyramid space and shape with its impressive height and intricately util design. As well as a library, this institutional center boasts an auditorium, meeting rooms, offices and shopping facilities. The impressive all-inclusive design makes the Book Mountain by MVRDV one-of-a-kind.
