A Tiny Public Library With A Roof Inspired By A Sheet Of Paper

Contemporist_ Ninja Stuudio has shared photos of “White Sheet”, a tiny public library and reading pavilion they completed in Tallinn, Estonia.

The design has been inspired by the image of a literary idea, with the pavilion’s roof hovering as a light sheet of paper in mid-air relying only on the glass shelves below.

The shelves are filled with books forming a kind of wall that gives some privacy to the people in the pavilion, while the floor is a simple wooden terrace that in combination with the glass walls gives the pavilion its light summery feel that matches well the local atmosphere.
