Case study of surrey library Case study of surrey library Presentation Transcript

  • SURREY LIBRARY
  • INTRODUCTION • With advances in easily available electronic information, the role of libraries is changing and providing appropriate spaces for evolving library activities is now the priority. • These activities range from the traditional research and education roles, to the need for libraries to become a point of connection and even a gathering place in the community. • As a result, Bing Thom Architects’ design for the new Surrey City Centre Library includes a diverse mixture of large interconnected “high” spaces with generous natural light.
  • • More intimate spaces to accommodate the book stacks and individual activities like studying and writing. • These spaces are scattered and modulated throughout the complex, revealing themselves as the patrons explore the building. • As Thom says, “The design evolves out of the need to provide a space for reading, studying, and above all, gathering as a community. This building is very flexible and will accommodate all of these purposes, but does so in a way that will intrigue and entice the users through the building.”

  • DESIGN • Its design features large windows, a welcoming entrance with clear sight lines that allow visitors to quickly orient themselves in the space, and an upward winding central atrium and two skylights that allow natural light into the building. The form of the building is inspired by the curvature of the adjacent University Drive, with an added dynamism provided by outward-sloping walls. • While seemingly complex, by utilizing state of the art computer modeling software, the architects were able to ensure that the concrete formwork was highly efficient and easy to construct. The exterior concrete structure is carefully detailed as the final surface, thereby eliminating the need for expensive building cladding. Designed to LEED standards, the outward sloped walls also provide solar shading.
  • SIDE ELEVATION
  • EAST FACE FACADE • One of the most dramatic spaces is the “living room,” a casual reading area adjacent to massive windows overlooking a future public plaza to the east, a double height space that is not apparent until you reach the third floor.33
