Gallery: TYIN Tegnestue Architects Build Beautiful Community Library in...

The loft is also made from local recycled materials and has lots of pillows set around a small table - the perfect place for meetings, quiet reading, or relaxing while admiring the fantastic roof beams.

Measuring only 10 feet by 30 feet, The Old Market Library was built in one of Bangkok’s poorest areas for only $4,500. Featuring different spaces for different functions, the lower reading room has a raised wooden platform that offers a secure dry area during Thailand’s annual rainy season. A wall made from locally found decayed wood is brightened up with freshly colored wooden boxes leftover from one of CASEs earlier projects that are used as bookshelves.
