St. Gallen Canton Library ST. GALLEN, SWITZERLAND
In the historical main post office building, a public library has been integrated at the railway station in the city of St. Gallen. For this purpose, the stocks of the cantonal library Vaidiana and the urban open access library were merged. The lighting concept from Reflexion is based on a diffuse, uniform and soft light distribution in order to avoid excessively high contrast and to generate an optimal vertical illuminance. All the luminaires were consistent with the same lamps. The chandeliers and the lighting installation were created specifically for the project and it receives the design language of the general illumination.
