Mongui Maduro Bibliotheek

Client: Mongui Maduro Foundation
Location: Rooi Catootje, Curaçao

This project is designed in collaboration with architect Cees den Heijer.
With respect to nature and the monumental land house a contemporary extension has been designed. Basically the design consist of slice of concrete, that starts as a shed, becomes a wall and continues as a roof. Underneath this roof the walls define the different spaces of the library and interact with nature. The visitor should be able to wonder around and discover the beauty of the preserved documents but will stay in contact with life through the big voids in the roof.
