APAFI MIHÁLY Reformed University College Reading Room
Interior Design / Commercial
Sometimes the challenge is not to create an extravagant design, but to respect the personality and practical functions of the space. With the reading room in the APAFI MIHÁLY Reformed University College, we wanted first of all to reflect the formal, puritan spirit of the institution.
Starting from an empty space, our main purpose was to maximize the seating options, and at the same time to assure the readers’ personal space. We divided the room into several areas: large desks that can also host group activities, smaller desks facing the wall for individual study, and a chill out corner with a small sofa.
Bookshelves are essential for a reading room, so we integrated just enough to fit all the books in the library. The painted solid wood furniture serves our main goal: to create something that will last.
