The public library “Nieuw Waldeck” was ready for a new interior, after operating 25 years without any alterations. Together with the architectural office Millies we made a design for the restyling of the interior.
In the floor plans, dating from the eighties, several walls and obstacles have been removed to create one big open space and at the same time opening the entrance to the outdoor space.
All furniture that is placed is especially designed and made for this project. Through the use of warm colors and materials a calm and inviting atmosphere is created.
In the way the furniture is placed different atmospheres and places are created, by not making the furniture too high a clear view in the library is guaranteed.
