Sant Antoni Public Library, Spain

Public libraries / Completed 2007

The Library of Sant Antoni, Barcelona

Close to the old Barrio Gotico and next to the market lies the new library of Sant Antoni, designed and built to harmonise with the Casal d´Avis Senior Citizens Centre.


The joint inner courtyard is open to everyone and, with its open design and large windows, is perfectly integrated with the library. The sense of openness is enhanced by the spacious furnishing, in which the black BCI Steel Shelves seem to serve as simple graphic highlights for the wider, open space.
