It might seem that the interior of the bookstore is based on the blue reticulated ladder and the yellow column as a bright coloristic accent strictly dividing the space into several zones. Even though the minimalistic continuous floor, the white brickwork and the downward bookshelves might be percepted as a careful invasion to the space, they actually play the key role in forming the interior’s infrastructure.
The furniture individually designed for the bookstore is multifunctional: mobile modules work both as the demonstration windows and the book storage while the metal net decorating the wall of the second floor is also used as a construction for exhibiting posters. The interior design reflects the philosophy of Respublica* bookstore where the main role in forming the space is given to visitors, books, postcards and various souvenirs. The architecture of the space supports this idea and works as a suitable background for the spirit of the bookstore.
