Libraries are places to get lost, be it in the literature they house or the surroundings themselves.

For some they act as places of refuge or to seek escapism, whilst for others they’re places ventured to in search of knowledge.

Often featuring architecture as intricate and detailed as the books themselves, here at the Studio we’ve been admiring libraries all over the world. Whether they are late Baroque, 21st-century Minimalist or Gothic-Renaissance in style, we’ve explored a plethora of reading rooms to get lost in.
