With my Indooroopilly Library redesign I aimed to evoke a calmness and an intimacy, feelings that can sometimes be hard to come across in a library.
The idea was to give occupants and users a space where you could come and study, read, research, unwind, bring the kids etc. I decided to create quite a modular experience to help extend the longevity and adaptability of the space, most bookcases are designed to be easily moved to allow for changes in layout effortlessly.
The colours of the library help create a calm and allow for focus, whilst the dark ceiling helps compact the space to a point of intimacy and tranquility without a claustrophobic atmosphere.The kid's area is designed to be just as fun energetic and playful as them, creating a space children will be excited about and help stimulate the mind and encourage learning. Indooroopilly library has been redesigned from the ground up to put the local community first.
