Mexican Home Converted To Cultural Library Center
Both the interior and exterior are great mixes of contemporary and traditional space, even with a tree shooting up through the center of the ceiling elevated space. Rows and rows of bookshelves line the walls, carrying all the way up to the ceiling in most cases– without any kind of height restrictions. Concrete and glass extends from the original plaster and brick structure, and it’s all worth it with glass louvres to allow natural ventilation and a glimpse of the interior ongoings.
“I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish… You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. And then when I do not succeed I get mad with anger.” —
Simone de Beauvoir
