....the thought behind form


The National Library forms part of a proposed 20,000m2 Cultural Plaza development at Seeb, on the outskirts of Muscat, capital of the Sultanate of Oman.

We designed the library around a circular plaza on a curving plan that allows it to be extended in the future. The first phase would house up to 400,000 volumes in the National Repository. Further phases, to house an 80,000-volume lending collection and an additional 250,000 volumes in the National Repository, were planned.
