Clifftop Library in China with Circular Pool

3andwich Design together with He Wei Studio, has completed the Water Drop Library that’s located in Shuangyue Bay Central Park in Huizhou City, China. The building sits on top of a hill, looking out towards the sea, and has been designed as “a white library under a pool of water”. The round design with a bowl-shaped roof allows for a shallow rooftop pool. Guests to the library can follow the hidden path on the north side of the long wall to the small platform in the pool.
