The library inserts under the garden Vil.la Florida under the shade of its trees. The roof of the library will be the extension of the existing gardens. Inside, a landscape in itself, articulated and changing where each use and each user find their place.
The building is shaped by ‘light patios’ and ‘silent patios’. The firsts, surrounded by glass, light and ventilate the interior while isolating the library from the street. The second, concrete volumes filled with books, are part of the supporting structure of the library. The old trees existing in the place were removed and later relocated on the roof once the library was built.
