Bois Library Studio

Renovation of an old barn into a library and studio. The two levels share an economic heating and cooling system, using fans at the top of the ceiling on the second floor to pull the cool air up from below to cool the second floor, or to push the hot air down in the winter. The perimeter desk on the second floor works in conjunction with the ventilation panels. All of the existing openings were glazed and the existing holes in the old floor were filled with resin. The perimeter vents and resin knots allow light and air to pass between the library and the writing studio.
