State Library Victoria, Australia’s oldest and largest public library has officially reopened its doors to the public, revealing an extensively transformed library.


The newly designed spaces are part of a five-year redevelopment plan aimed at expanding the library’s community outreach and enhancing the visitor experience. Working in partnership, Schmidt Hammer Lassen and Architectus were tasked with rethinking and revitalising the existing spaces of the library in order to unlock possibilities, create connections, and provide a framework for the library’s ongoing and future evolution.



As the busiest public library in Australia, attracting 1.8 million visitors and 3.3 million online users each year, State Library Victoria is a rich and celebrated cultural institution in Melbourne, a space that reaches out to a broad range of users.

During the design process, a series of co-creation workshops where held to engage the users directly in the library’s redevelopment. Input and feedback from children, teens and their families have helped the design team to understand the future user needs. That valuable feedback will translate into the creation of their dream library.

The architectural design concept puts users at the centre, providing an open, accessible, and welcoming experience for all ages and cultural backgrounds.

建筑前身在1906 -1997 年为墨尔本博物馆,1999 - 2002 年则被用作为维多利亚国家美术馆。项目的一期开发已于2018年完成。本次再开发的场馆可由两个新增的入口到达——一个位于La Trobe 街,另一个则是已关闭超过10年,位于历史悠久的Russell大街的入口。

In 2018, phase one of the development project was completed. Formerly housing the Melbourne Museum from 1906 to 1997 and the National Gallery of Victoria from 1999 to 2002, the redeveloped sites are now serviced by two new additional entrances – a universally accessible entrance on La Trobe Street, and the historic Russell Street entrance that was closed for more than a decade.

Russell大街入口内即是全新的Baldwin Spencer大厅,这是一个温暖的空间,将图书馆友好地引入了城市。

Just inside the new Russell Street entrance is the new Baldwin Spencer Hall, a warm, welcoming space that anchors the library on an urban scale.

Baldwin Spencer大厅内设置的休息空间和会面空间,被称为Russell大街的欢迎区。其中包括新的咖啡厅,以及从图书馆西端搬迁至此的Readings书店。

Baldwin Spencer Hall now houses a lounge and meeting space called the Russell Street Welcome Zone, which includes the new Guild café, and the Readings bookshop that is relocated from the western end of the library.

来自当地视觉艺术家Tai Snaith的艺术作品横跨于29米宽的墙面,整个宏伟的空间由原有的澳洲红木地板修复后铺就而成。

Works from local visual artist Tai Snaith spans a 29-metre wall, and the grand space is grounded by restored original jarrah floors, a hardwood native to Australia.

步入图书馆,重新开发后的McArthur & Swinburne画廊设置了安静的阅读空间,适宜静心阅读和研究。拥有最先进视听设备的新中央餐吧,则占据了Isabella Fraser厅,这是一个以图书馆第一位女员工命名的全新特别活动场所。

Moving further into the library, the redeveloped McArthur and Swinburne Galleries house reading rooms designated as quiet space for reading and research. State-of-the-art audio-visual technology and a new production kitchen occupy the Isabella Fraser Room, a new special events venue named after the library’s first female employee.

The adjacent Victoria Gallery is a 500-square-metre exhibition space that offers an immersive and interactive experience for visitors.

Throughout State Library Victoria, all furniture, fittings and equipment were carefully selected and designed to complement the architectural interventions.

This includes moveable elements and fixed pieces that work together in aesthetic harmony, tying the project together.

Before the redevelopment, the layout of the 164-year-old library drew visitors through a sequence of spaces that made it easy to leave the building without being fully aware of the library’s diverse offering. The design concept creates a more holistic experience with a clear hierarchy of thresholds and spaces, connecting the various zones of the library physically and visually.

The 163-year-old The Ian Potter Queen’s Hall has now reopened to the public after 16 years. The space has been stripped back, revealing its former beauty and original paint work, while drawing a modern design line through the Hall and the rest of the library to link rooms together.

Spaces have been revealed and made directly accessible, allowing visitors to move through the library more intuitively, exploring and uncovering all of its treasures.

State Library Victoria is the ultimate memory institution. Its role as custodian of the past and curator of the future is vital. With new facilities, it will also act as a hub for creation of new knowledge for generations to come, as libraries should.
