The new design features floor to ceiling bookshelves that span the perimeter of the space while six pine trunks counterpoint the regularity of the shelf grid and support hanging hammocks. Drawings by artist Rūta Briede take a special place in the interior, confirming illustration as an integral part of the reading experience.
