New Library – Chato

IPA were engaged by TLSB to carry out a concept design for a proposed new Memorial Library for President John P Magufuli, in his hometown of Chato.

The intention of this design was to produce a fitting memorial to the departed President. The library includes several different divisions, teaching spaces, crèche, and children’s library, as well as ample space for exhibitions.

Prior to carrying out this design, IPA undertook extensive research in modern library trends, to ensure that when constructed, this facility is at the forefront of any modern developments in library design. This relates not only to the facilities provided, but the flexible flow of spaces and ensuring that this building becomes not only a receptacle of knowledge, but a community space used for many different activities.
