Book Velvet: Community Library

Sectional perspective

The project creates a shelter for the marginalised community in Chow Kit, including undocumented foreigners and stateless children, among others. Besides providing the community with a sense of belonging, educational resources and employment opportunities, the study space also serves as a knowledge portal that could be used by most Chow Kit residents. 

The four-storey building houses an indoor and outdoor library; staff quarters; rooftop garden; café; nursery; innovation centre; auditorium; solitary reading area; study or meeting room; gallery; plaza; bookstore; communal kitchen and lounge area; etc. 


Concrete and wood are incorporated to highlight the building’s organic shape while Low-E double glazed curtain wall is utilised for the majority of the façade to increase the permeability of the community library, drawing pedestrians’ attention to the place.
