Redefining Public Washrooms
Kedah Digital Library became the second Digital Library designed by BETA, following the overwhelming success of Penang Digital Library 2 in Penang.It celebrates the future-forward concept of “Library Without Books” and redefining the role of a State-owned Public Library as Learning Hub and Community Node. The project emerged as a result of Adaptive Re-use of an existing 2-storey Colonial Bungalow Memorial Tunku Abdul Rahman Building in Alor Setar, in a site of total area spanning 2.13 acres. The former Memorial Tunku Abdul Rahman Building is an iconic landmark within the immediate milieu, rich with heritage value and charm. Original site is nestled in a lush green lung adjacent Alor Setar’s largest urban park and now rejuvenated with a new life as a Digital Library in a park-garden ambience.
