Library Predikherenklooster Mechelen, Belgium

More than 200 seventies spotlights, in the color "moss gray" as requested by the client, illuminate the resources of the Mechelen Library at their new location. As of September 2019, the library is located within the newly restored Mechelen Monastery, originally founded in 1654.

After an eventful history as cloister, refuge, military hospital, and barracks, followed by decades of vacancy, the city decided on a new use for the abandoned building in 2010.
From the ensemble of the Mechelen Library together with classrooms, a restaurant, a leafy inner courtyard and the neighboring monastery church, a new cultural center has arisen.
