Médiathèque de Tarnos Public Library, France
1 January 2013 / Project news
A member of the local community decided to donate a piece of land to the Municipality, but her request was that the area be used for a public garden
The architects found a way to satisfy the request of the donor by partly using the roof of the library to create a public garden. The trees in the glass boxes inside the library are a part of the garden on the roof top. Furthermore, there is an exterior staircase in the middle of the building giving easy access to the garden.
