Library, Mekif A. Ashdod

Ashdod, Israel, 2003

This library was converted from a hall in a school in Ashdod.

Due to the low height of the ceilings, a minimalistic and limited design to the library was needed.

The design used a steel space frame which rests on steel columns, and a reinforced concrete slab that was cast in place and smoothed to use as a finished floor.

The conversion also required strengthening the existing foundation in the building floor and perimeter walls.
