green square library

“The library includes a generous open plan community room, a green walled amphitheatre, a storytelling garden, and a music room and lofty reading room inside a 6 storey glazed tower. The landscape includes a water feature, gathering lawn, outdoor power points and open space for festivals and events. The design is inviting and intentionally playful and encouraging spontaneous visits from passers-by..”  Stewart Architects

The project was the winning scheme in an international design competition organised by the City of Sydney, along with numerous other Awards.
