The Sea Library in Awashima by ETAT arkitekter: The new library is housed in a heritage-classified building from the 1920’s overlooking the harbor. ETAT’s refurbishment is designed to highlight the material and spatial qualities of the existing wooden building and to enhance its relationship to the sea. A rectangular brass table and brass screens with gently rippled surfaces create wavy reflections of the interior that are reminiscent of water.
