【看CP學英文】歷時四個月的修繕、搬遷,「不只是圖書館」進駐台北松菸北側澡堂7月1日重新開館。

After four months of work, “Not Just Library” reopened on Thursday at a new location at Songshan Creative and Cultural Park, previously used as a public bathhouse.

台灣設計研究院經營的「不只是圖書館」,由知名空間設計團隊「柏成設計」、景觀設計師吳書原操刀進行改造,以「泡書」為核心主旨,有書籍、陽光、植物與氣味,邀請讀者享受沈浸閱讀。

Run by Taiwan Design Research Institute (TDRI), the library, designed by JC Architecture and landscape designer Wu Shu-yuan (吳書原), aims to provide a space and chill atmosphere for people to “bathe in knowledge through the company of books, sunlight, plants and scents.”

「不只是」為跨領域概念,來到這裡不只是閱讀、借閱書籍,不定時的設計展覽、講座、實驗等等將激發更多創意可能。

The library not only allows you to borrow books, but also provides a reading area and a venue for design-related exhibitions, lectures, and experiments that extend the “not just” design concept, according to the TDRI.

事實上,「不只是圖書館」原為擁有80逾年歷史的女工公共澡堂,經過專業設計團隊策劃、改造,搖身一變成為寬敞明亮的閱讀空間。

“Not Just Library” was originally a public bathhouse for women workers. The building, which has a history of more than 80 years, has been transformed into a spacious and bright reading space by a professional design team.

柏成設計的設計理念寫道,「不只是圖書館,不只是83年的澡堂古蹟,不只是文化場所。」希望讀者來到這裡沿著廊道向上,迎面書香撲鼻,放下室外的紛擾,享受一場心靈上的沐浴,知識的狂
歡。

“It’s not just an 83-year-old bathhouse monument, not just a cultural venue,” JC Architecture said, expressing hopes readers will follow the corridor upwards, face the fragrance of books, put aside the disturbance of the outdoors, and enjoy a spiritual bath and the madness of knowledge.

這次改造分為三大區,分別是「BOOK BATH 泡書區」、「BATHHOUSE 澡堂區」、「BREATH 戶外花園」。

The renovated library is divided into three sections: “Book Bath,” “Bathhouse” and “Outdoor Garden.”

「BOOK BATH 泡書區」延伸室內澡堂意象,跳脫澡池既定跨入式座位,打造環書圍繞的下沉式閱讀區域,成為浸泡知識的書池。此區以書籍堆砌而成的階梯式座位,中島則作為書籍擺放、展覽呈現的平台,讓空間利用更加彈性。

Unlike traditional tables with spacious surfaces and work areas, the “Book Bath” area builds on the image of an indoor bathtub, retaining part of the original interior and creating a platform through which visitors descend surrounded by books. This symbolizes being immersed in knowledge, the institute said.
