From time to time, CO-OP Studio keeps on impressing us with their functional and avante-garde ideas. So when last September they asked us to help them bring their new architectural project to life, we were thrilled to meet this exciting challenge.
Besides their cultural role, libraries also have a very determining community-forming strength. No wonder why Bentleigh Library (which is only a 13 kilometers drive from Melbourne’s city center) has been a popular spot among open-minded young locals for years.
Consequently, from this year for about 18 months, the library will be closed to transform into a new community hub that integrates youth services, offers quiet corners and new multipurpose spaces.
