M+R interior architecture

how to shape a library

The library is the engine for research. In this information age, the library provides public resources that provide access to reliable knowledge. And, as an extension of the huge databases, it is also an all-in-one place for learning, consuming, sharing, making, inspiring and experiencing. It also remains the quiet refuge in a busy world, becoming a place for involvement. The library provides access to the physical and online collection, neutral and reliable information, modern technology and mentorship. It offers spatial diversity with room for individual study, dynamic collaboration, with room for experimentation and elaboration of acquired knowledge. In contrast to adapting to the order in the library in the past, today's library adapts to the changing needs of the user. Because of this flexibility, a well-designed library offers a stopping place for knowledge.

The challenge that the designers of M+R are only too happy to take on:


Social value central
Digital first
Thinking in networks

An attractive and inspiring place of knowledge

“a room without books is like a body without a soul.”
