After nine months of renovation works, the Pasir RIs Library has re-opened its door to the public 'bookworms' with a brand new look and strong focus on teenagers last 28th November 2015. The two-storey library showcases unique features mezzanine area dedicated to young people, called the Teens' Mezzanine.
The Teens' Mezzanine is designed for digital natives to connect and interact with books and each other - physically and digitally. Also in the space, teens and adults alike can interact with a Doodle Wall, where they can draw and edit using their fingertips with the help of an interactive projector. The display aims to help facilitate live collaborative discussions through the use of visualization.
Aside from the teen focus, the Pasir Ris Public Library also features a number of other reading zones and technological additions that will appeal to people from other age groups.
One of the highlights was the reading nook or the reading terrace. What makes it special is it was installed with Evorich Flooring's High End Resilient Flooring (HERF)! This area - reading terrace with windows overlooking Pasir Ris Park meant to provide readers with a serene space reminiscent of reading by the park. Evorich's HERF - Durban Oak Design adds an exciting and inviting ambience to all that gives a comfortable and relaxing space for every reader.
Participatory design from end users together with client’s initiative for a new library experience results in an energized design collaboration which seeks to create a new curated library experience. Featuring a variety of intimate private spatial experiences within the public library compound setting, an ephemeral landscape of relationships and possibilities is born.
"Evorich is humbled and proud to be included on this project. Supporting eco-friendly awareness, we are also glad that we have given an opportunity to contribute to the public and showcase our HERF Flooring's comfortability feature. Every single area in this newly revamped library is a great idea for the convenience of all library users."
said Alex Aw, Director of Sales, Evorich Flooring
