Project Details
Double Bay Library

Citizen was invited by BVN Architecture to design a wayfinding and placemaking strategy that would help visitors navigate the flexible floor plan that incorporated zones for different activities and programs within the new Double Bay Library. 

We identified opportunities for creative bespoke wall graphics as key components of the placemaking and wayfinding strategy. Leveraging the opportunity for community engagement and ownership, the centrepiece of our placemaking design was a man-made ‘garden’ wall of individual plywood blocks inscribed with the name of residents and the title of their favourite book. Complements the circular shapes in the building features, the pixel language used in the signage solution is symbolic of the convergence of print and digital in modern book publishing.
