This library building was built on a deserted beach completely spilled out of concrete. A wonderful view of the East Chinese Sea opens from the windows. Buy cement in bags and other concrete ingredients required Vector studio, which turned these simple materials into a magnificent design for storing books with a multi -level reading room crowned with a curved ceiling.
The Vector studio itself is based in Beijing, and they built the Primorsky library on the beach of Nandaiha in the coastal district in the eastern part of China.
In the two -story library building there is a multi -level reading room, meditation space, active room and bar.
Walls made of monolithic concrete are made in a special way – they are associated with the dead wooden boards. Indeed, depending on the photo, we can decide that even inside everything is decorated with a wooden formwork of a cold shade, but in fact – this is a corrugated concrete texture made specifically in this style. Architects say that this means “trace of memory”. The granularity of the tree is followed by the designers to leave on the library. In addition, the texture softens concrete rigidity and adds heat to it.
Vector experts add that from the side the library looks like a structure made of weeded rocks of stone, clean and solid. And the inner interior conveys rich feelings and experiences. Moving around the premises, a person feels the proximity of the ocean and feels solitude, being far from the bustle of the city.
A wooden floor with terraces and a reading platform resonates with concrete walls.
Architects also designed an unusual ceiling with rigid geometry and holes that allow light and air to penetrate into space.
Through a glass door, you can go to a separate reading room located on the beach. In a separate room with muffled light, you can meditate. And if you climb the stairs, you will get on a concave terrace on the roof with which you can listen to the ocean, but not see it. This is also a special effect provided by the developers of the project.
