New Art book room for the Shakespeare and company library

Following our ongoing relationship with the famous library in Paris, we have refurbished from scratch a room adjacent to the main library to house their collection of Art books. The aim was to create a new design while keeping a sense of belonging to the original store.

We created, specified and helped installing a marble mosaique floor with brass inserts to set the room. A mezzanine was constructed to make the best of the unfamiliar height and allow one of the tumbleweeds to use the space to write. You can find underneath it a cosy nook where you can comfortably browse the desired books. The walls on the other sides are covered with stacked bespoke bookcases that create a dynamic yet functional rhythm.
