Microlibrary – Warak Kayu by SHAU

Architect Name: Daliana

Microlibrary Warak Kayu represents SHAU’s passive climate design, material and typology experimentation for the tropical context. The building is elevated, like a traditional ‘rumah panggung’ (house on stilts) because it does not only function as library but adds value by becoming a community center.

The brise soleil is based on the ‘Zollinger Bauweise’ a construction which forms a reciprocal system, resulting in a distinctive slightly shifted diamond pattern. This pattern happens to resemble a local mythical creature ‘Warak Ngendog’ and its dragon-like skin. Hence the name Warak Kayu – meaning Wooden Warak. The building is made entirely from FSC certified wood.
