AMER I CAN I NTERNAT I ONAL SCHOOL OF BUCHAREST
The project outline We arranged a CEESA (Central and Eastern Europe School Association) conference featuring library consultant Kevin Hennah.We had him stay on for two days and he led with the conceptual design of the space.We also had a local architect who we met with numerous times to shape the current look of the library. Finally, we had some images from the Savanah College of Ar t and Design as inspiration for par ts of the design. The school director was very helpful and also gave good input.
outcome “We created a welcoming space for older students.The mezzanine holds fiction and has no tables, making it more of a drop-in space. The lower section is very flexible, with light weight tables and soft furniture and the Raeco shelving on wheels. This allows us to use the space for a variety of functions.We are pleased with the results, it does not look like a library and should be well ahead for several years. I also like the small study spaces for quiet work.”
