Vector Architects' latest design project is a panoramic library that boasts striking views of the seaside. The contemporary space borrows from the brutalist architecture movement and relies on heavy concrete elements to make up its exterior shell.
Once inside, visitors are greeted by the same grey tones that adorn the building's exterior but will experience a warmer play on textures. This panoramic library's concrete and stone finishes are paired with warm food flooring and floor-length glass partitions that are penetrated with natural light.
In addition to its warm and earthy aesthetic, this reading space also boasts stunning views of the Chinese city Nandaihe and its vast coastline and waterfront. Overall, the space gives its visitors a feeling of calm and concentration when reading.
