LIBRARIES

LIGHTING IS ESSENTIAL to successful library design. Illumination must be uniform, ample on both vertical and horizontal surfaces, and fixtures themselves can play an important role in wayfinding through tall maze-like stacks. Today, these spaces are for more than just reading, and we seek to provide flexible schemes suitable for various forms of programming.
