The project design chooses to reduce the signs of architectural intervention in order to ensure at the same time a strong bookstore identity.
The shelf takes on multi-functionality: it becomes an illuminating body, index of categories, the key continuous element in a space almost void of other objects or colors except for the books themselves. On the walls, there are no vertical elements.
Only illuminated horizontal lines run through the thick space out of which emerge the faces of the authors serving as a visual, facial index.
