图书馆是ConCourHouse儿童教育资源的一个重要的新组成部分,在其他项目空间中是独一无二的,它是一个专门用于书籍和阅读的场所,以及非常需要的阅读、故事时间和其他围绕书籍举办的活动的空间。阅读对儿童的认知发展和情感健康的重要性得到了广泛的承认,图书馆的目的是为儿童提供探索和想象的空间和机会,这些儿童往往无法阅读自己的书籍。图书馆位于大厅多用途空间拱形天花板下的一个黑暗、未被充分利用的夹层空间中,旨在打破建筑中其他空间的机构质量,通过明亮、多彩和有趣的环境让孩子们在视觉上参与进来,并允许个人和有组织的团体阅读和讲故事之间的灵活过渡。

The library is an important new component of the educational resources for the children at Concourse House and is unique among the other program spaces as a place specifically dedicated to books and reading, and much-needed space for readings, story times, and other events organized around books. The importance of reading for the cognitive development and emotional health of children is widely recognized, and the library is designed to provide space and opportunity for exploration and imagination for children who, more often than not, do not have access to their own books. Situated in an dark, underused mezzanine space under the vaulted ceiling of the Concourse House multipurpose space, the library is designed to break from the institutional quality of the other spaces in the building, to engage the children visually through a bright, colorful, and playful environment, and to allow for flexible transitions between individual and organized group readings and storytelling.

围绕着,照亮的搁板单元位于桶形天花板上,并作为图书馆活动的背景,并作为图书馆与下面的双高度空间之间的视觉上可透过的屏障,提供了超出木材定位销的屏幕的空间。在天花板下面,附加的架子衬有软垫的POUFS,其可以作为座位元件取出,或者当被存储时用作连续的软垫靠背,从而允许儿童舒适地坐在地板上。一个大、五颜六色的地毯把房间的形状和颜色融入了一个有趣的柔软的风景。两个圆形的Coriran桌子被集成到搁板和图书馆的镶板端壁,以及附加的LED照明和可擦除的书写表面。

Around, illuminated shelving unit is nestled against the barrel-vaulted ceiling and serves as a backdrop to the library activities and as a visually permeable barrier between the library and the double height space below, affording glimpses of the spaces beyond through a screen of wood dowels. Below the ceiling, additional shelves are lined with upholstered poufs that can be brought out as seating elements, or serve as a continuous upholstered backrest when stored, allowing the children to comfortably sit on the floor. A large and colorful carpet incorporates the shapes and colors of the room into a playful soft landscape. Two rounded Corian tables are integrated into the shelving and the paneled end wall of the library, along with additional LED lighting and an erasable writing surface.

该项目是由朱莉和凯特亚明和许多小额捐款促成的。图书馆里堆满了1200本儿童读物,它们来自华盛顿高地的社区中心和书店-姐妹住宅区书店(Sisters Uptown Bookstore)。MKCA无偿提供了所有的设计和建筑服务,并领导了该项目从其他设计师、供应商、制造者和承包商那里获得更多实物捐助的努力。

The project is made possible by Julie and Kate Yamin and numerous small donations. The library has been filled with 1,200 children’s books from Sisters Uptown Bookstore, a community center and bookstore in Washington Heights. MKCA provided all design and architecture services pro-bono and led the effort to solicit additional in-kind donations from other designers, suppliers, fabricators, and contractors in for the project.

“书和阅读的爱是定义我自己童年的东西,也是我们团队中每个人的爱,”说mkca校长MichaelChen.“想象力的空间和书籍的负担是这样的礼物,尤其是对于那些目前没有永久住所或者没有自己的空间的孩子们。与汇合院合作,使图书馆成为一个值得信赖的儿童群体的现实是一种特权。”

“The love of books and of reading is something that defined my own childhood, and that of everyone on our team,” said MKCA principal Michael Chen. “The space for imagination and for reflection that books afford is such a gift, especially for kids who don’t currently have a permanent home or might not have a space of their own. It’s a privilege to work with Concourse House to make the library a reality for such a deserving group of children.”
