contributed by ramon-esteve

The Library, a free square volume within a green surroundings dotted with trees, is situated in a sprawling area of the town of Ontinyent, The orthogonality of the surrounding is disjointed into four breakages, materialized through organic levels that introduce natural light and allow the interior spaces to turn toward the vegetation that surrounds it. Walls break up the interior in several rooms, creating a central area of connection. By being aware that the heart of the library is defined by the books, they accompany the walls that form the structure and that make up the spaces. The program is defined by the four rooms resulting in: multi-purpose space, children area, general background, and area for magazines, newspapers, music and image. The connection with the outside is direct,as views are created between cross- stays and visual leaks. A large number of skylights filter a homogeneous light, neutral and clean, creating a calm atmosphere that encourages reading and reflection.
