Located on the Bohai Sea coast in China, Vector Architects created the ‘Seashore Library‘ a rock solid mono-block volume that seems to have landed on the beach and has opened its side towards the natural sea element.The dramatic massive conception involves a wooden treated interior open space organized as a public library. We find the location of this architectural piece quite ingenious as the water and its calming effects is the most suitable for such an introspect program where one tends to loose himself in creative wonderful imaginary lands.
“From outside, it looks like a weathered rock that is pure and solid; but inside, what it contains is the rich feelings and experiences.”
The massive grey sloped piece seems to melt away into the endless sea.
The curved concrete ceiling in combination with the expansive glass wall and wooden finishes adds an elegant contrast we find highly adequate and beuatiful in simplicity.
The solitude and massiveness of this conception is what makes the Seashore Library Designed by Vector Architects a true beauty.
