Seiro Township Library is designed as a community space for small town. The library has two different characteristic roofs. The south side lower roof is a welcome canopy for guests. The north side roof is raised for north wind of winter. The slit of two roofs provides softly light and refreshing breeze to the inside. In the internal space, there are several small huts which are named “House”. Each “House” is surrounded by books, exhibition wall and reading seats. Those elements and “Houses” make a distinctive interior landscape as “Town of Books”.
