|Varna Regional Library|
Competition Entry for Varna Regional Library organized by Varna Municipality and the Chamber of Architects in Bulgaria.
In the library building, we focused on the dynamics and interactions of the pedestrians and users. Public foyer together with clean and streamlined articulations are penetrating through the building envelop to enhance openness and the connectivity with the neighbouring premises. As a result, the architectural expressions in the design radiate senses of freshness and energy. Besides, as the printed media is gradually displaced by electronic mediums, the role of library becomes more a 'meeting venue' than a 'reading place'. To reflect this trend, the functional areas are organized around the main circulation spine that extends from the public foyer.
Total built-up area: 17,986.82sq.m
