These images are of a coversion of an old house in Mexico City into a library and cultural centre. The project was headed by Mexican architects Fernanda Canales and Arquitectura 911sc. The library is designed as an urban garden library, framed by a concrete portal and enclosed on one side by glass curtain wall and held by a classical heritage facade on the other.

I find the resultant space and form an innovative take on the traditional forecourt to most classical facades. More so the walls cladded in literature adds so elaborately to the space.

Stunning.
