Colorful and Appealing Student Library in Melbourne by dKO Architecture
As part of the Australian Federal Government’s Building Education Revolution, dKO Architecture was commissioned to design the student library and associated facilities at St Joseph’s Primary School in Collingwood, Melbourne. Here is the official project description we received: “Today’s libraries are repositories and access points for vast quantities of print, audio and visual materials in numerous formats. With projects of this nature the opportunity for architects is to create spaces that meet the challenges brought about by ever-changing technology as well as providing for a dynamic and diverse age group within the primary school learning spectrum. Quality of light and an intelligent use of space are paramount. Careful consideration should also be given to managing internal traffic areas and noise control. dKO Architecture’s design has delivered an environment which encourages vibrant student interaction while accommodating quiet study areas, as well as considered and abundant storage for the vast amount of resources required in the modern day library.” Think this is the sort of design that will boost the kids’ reading appetite?
