Kaliningrad Library Innovation

How do you turn a traditional library into a social hub?

How do you turn a conventional, worn-down and uninviting library into a welcoming social hub? The main library of Kaliningrad wanted to improve its user’s experience in its facilities. Holding co-design workshops with library staff, management and stakeholders, we identified specific user needs, highlighted important qualities and located potential areas of improvement in and around the library. Library innovation

Based on our findings we redesigned the library experience by reconfiguring user flows and creating zones with different atmospheres that targeted different users. Our design connects the library better to the outdoor urban space and makes the entrance more welcoming and intuitive for visitors.
