Craigieburn Library / Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp


A new and innovative way of thinking. The Hume Global Learning Center in Craigieburn, Australia is a public library center that provides and serves the community with its new, modern atmosphere. Designed by Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp, the  building has warm, earthy colors and the balance of light gathers the public to visit the cafe, gallery, computer center, meeting space and childcare center. Very simple, but well planned architectural design with just the right amount of natural light striking into the building and more specifically the primary reading room.


The shading areas on the verandas give a sunlight break and an outdoor cool feel as well. Besides the big glass windows, the main material is local sourced earth which also benefits from the friendliness and sustainability of the environment.
