East Melbourne Library

1:1Architects were commissioned to work with Melbourne City Projects to design and document the internal fit out of a new library in East Melbourne.

The brief emphasised the importance of environmental sustainability within the design, leading us to question the traditional joinery design and methodology in providing a unique design solution.
