The architect Daniel Mòdul approached the interior of the library with a graphic concept inspired by TWIG, the successful modular bench series by Escofet. The formal leitmotiv taken from this significant piece has been turned into a pattern of footprint-like paintings expressed in the concrete pavement. Some retro-lightened plastic TWIG’s have been chosen to convey a certain poetic narrative into the reading room’s flooring.

LINK -the reinforced cast stone and steel built up series of benches- and TRAMET -with the thick pinewood section being its most notable feature- have been installed in other communal areas of LLoret de Mar Cultural Centre. The inspirational use of these elements captures the flow and emphasizes the continuity from the exterior realm into the public space.
