PUBLIC LIBRARY IN VEGGIANO, PADUA
A Cultural Service Open to the Community
The new library marks the entrance to the town of Veggiano. It is both an element of identity and a landmark for local citizens. The building is harmoniously inserted within the landscape, establishing a close relationship/integration between the suggestive architectural image of its structure, strategies to ensure its sustainability and functional questions related to the flexibility of its spaces. In this search for a dialogue with the site, highly versatile spaces have been designed with an integrated relationship between interior and exterior that projects the building along multiple axes of visual, social and cultural interaction. A homogenous architectural layout defines the interiors of the library, marked by the rhythm of a series of structural timber portals that create a warm environment with a human scale.
