The One You've All Been Waiting For...

Finally! Geneviéve and I have finished making our final model of the library. After working extensively on the project during the final weeks of the semester, we are very pleased with the outcome!

The Exterior Model

The first floor (already in existence) consists of a laundry room and a storage room. The storage room will be renovated into a classroom. The second floor will house the library's 2000 book collection.

Strategically placed windows allow for a cross-breeze, eliminating the need for a central cooling system.

A balcony offers a nice space for outdoor reading.

The interior model:

I made the couch out of sculpey clay! The floor is made from coffee stirrers cut and staggered to look like floorboard, then coated with hardwood floor varnish.

A fourth wall, containing the majority of the shelving, was removed to allow us to better photograph the model.

The library includes a desk area where electronic resources such as computers will be placed. There is also a "kid's corner" (blue shelving), and a comfortable couch to encourage reading and spending time in the library.

We'd love to know what you think of the design!
