WOOLLAHRA LIBRARY BY BVN

-

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.
