Library For Kids: King Solomon School- Phase 2
The children’s Library at the King Solomon School, a Jewish bilingual International school in the centre of Israel, is centred on the schools holistic approach to education.
The design concept for the library came from the idea of travelling through the imagination, a journey inspiring the children to learn in multiple ways.
The Library is designed with clean, formalistic lines that mix different hand-made wooden textures, three-dimensional wood embossments.
The focal point of the 120 square meters Library is the life size sculptural caravan in the middle. The wooden caravan provides a more private area for children to read and reflect quietly, removed from the public space.
The library design reflects the change in the way children learn, over the past decade, libraries for children have changed. It is no longer just a traditional warehouse of books, but an interactive engaging place.
