The project consists of a renovation and addition of 900 square meters to an existing library located on the Einstein College campus (k-12) in Quito, Ecuador. The aim of the renovations and additions was to transform the existing building into a modern space that meets current needs.

The Library is located in the center of the campus and near the main entrance; It is one of the most visible buildings on the campus of the Alberto Einstein Experimental College. Leppanen Anker aimed to use the prominent location and create a node that could be opened to the campus community through interesting views and spatial experiences of the surrounding buildings.
