WOOL­LAHRA LI­BRARY BY BVN

Australian Traveller - - Shortcuts Hot List -

You’ll find a sky-high atrium lined with creep­ers upon en­ter­ing the new Wool­lahra Li­brary in Syd­ney’s Dou­ble Bay. Ar­chi­tec­ture firm BVN took cues from the lo­cal li­brary’s pre­vi­ous lo­ca­tion in nearby Black­burn Gar­dens and has now brought the garden in­side. Lo­cated in a shop­ping strip with plenty of good cafes on its pe­riph­ery, vis­i­tors are in­vited to wan­der in with their cof­fee and browse like they would its neigh­bour­ing bou­tique stores. BVN’s de­sign of the new Mar­rickville Li­brary, also in Syd­ney and slated to open in 2020, will be given a sim­i­larly stylish and com­mu­ni­ty­fo­cused treat­ment.
