WHAT WE LOVE
London's Libreria bookshop, established in 2016, was designed by Spanish architects SelgasCano. This small bookshop appears much larger than it actually is by the clever use of mirrors on the ceiling and back cleverly reflecting the well-stocked bookshelves. Inside the shop emits a welcoming warm glow that invites browsers and shoppers to stay a while in one of the cleverly inserted reading nooks between the shelves. Books are arranged by interesting topics, such as wanderlust or The City to encourage discovery.
Libreria offers a monthly subscription, events and the space is available for private hire.
"Every aspect of Libreria is designed to help you discover new books and ideas, and encourage interdisciplinary thinking."
