3andwich Design and He Wei Studio have designed The Water Drop Library in Huizhou, China.
"It's more of a small community cultural and artistic space than a traditional library," said 3andwick Design about this project.
Located in a park next to a newly built community overlooking the sea, The Water Drop Library integrates the cultural functions of a library with media attributes of a landmark – while unifying physical experience and visual communication and exploring an innovative library model.
It's hidden at the end of the hill with a bowl-shaped roof profile; inside is a pool, below which the main building is located.
The indoor space presents a sequence of alternating light and dark and provides possibilities for surrounding residents to read, gather, rest and exhibit.
