Reuse and Restoration: The New York Public Library renovated the existing 1907 Carnegie Library in Stapleton, Staten Island, blending old and new by adding a new 7,000-square-foot modern addition alongside the older building. The addition is constructed of glue-laminated Douglas fir posts, beams, joists, and roof. The older adjacent building was transformed into a children’s reading room.

The new St. Mark's Bookstore, NY. The retailer commissioned Clouds Architecture Office who put particular focus on that key part of any bookshop, the shelving.“The book shelving is designed to stimulate the ocular experience,” they add. “Vertical supports are pulled back to pronounce the horizontal edges of the shelving. Sharp corners are eliminated, smoothed into a continuous series of horizontal bands, which allow the eye to glide around the space without visual friction."
