university library

Royal University of Phnom Penh

Intended to double the size of the existing library, the new building is linked by bridges and provides a new library entrance. On two levels, it houses reading and study areas, seminar rooms, teaching spaces and special collections. Most of the building is not airconditioned; external glazing is shaded from the sun and louvred openings provide natural air movement through the building.
