    Birkenhead Library and Civic Centre

    The architectural concept for the library is based around a simple narrative of looking through ancient existing trees on the site to the view thus notions of solid and void, transparency, light quality, pattern and form were considered and modelled to inform various design issues. The intention was to have a pleasant and verdant quality of light available within the building that subtly changes during the day, leading to the building becoming trans-parent at night.
