Al Jouf Children's Library
Latest Project Status: Competition
Role: Lead Consultant
Location: Al Jouf, KSA
Building Type: Cultural
The project brief called for an extension of the existing library; this new wing would house an additional 2500 m2 for a children’s Library, 2500 m2 for media storage/periodicals/rare books collections, 2000 m2 for administration zones, and 2000 m2 for public areas including a 500m2 auditorium. When we first approached the design for the Dar Al-Uloum Children’s library, the first words that popped in our collective design minds were dynamic, engaging, exciting and playful. We were adamant and invested in creating a series of interlocking spaces that was awe-inspiring and that attracted children of all ages (and adults alike) to want to visit the library and be invested in learning and continuously re-educating themselves.
