This project involves the creation of a flexible and repeatable module system, generated to serve Arion’s independent bookstores and their ever-changing showrooms.
The bookshop is distributed on two floors: the first, street/entrance level consists of two consecutive spaces while the lower level is comprised of two distinct areas. The storefront on the entrance level boasts three large windows that allow passers-by to observe the shop’s merchandise and activity. Studio Labark’s wall system concept maintains and utilizes the existing windows to serve as means of communication and presentation between the interior and exterior of the bookstore.
The system is a new take on the classical spatial distribution of libraries and bookshelves. By distorting the traditional bookshelf shape, we have maintained unchanged displays on the walls and integrated them with independent changeable modules.
