It’s a quiet, relaxing space in the center of Bellcates’ exciting learning space. It’s the Book Nook. Designed and implemented by student Eric and staff as a place for quiet repose and reading. It is softly lit with Himalayan Salt lamps and reading lights creating a comfortable and warm reading space.
In an effort to provide a healthy space, the walls and shelves were built out of locally sourced Hemlock and we used the traditional Japanese wood-burning technique called ‘ Shou Sugi Ban’ to treat the wood giving the room a rustic appearance free of chemicals.
The salt lamps produce negative ions which help purify the air bonding with pollen and other allergens which are airborne.
If you’re looking for a place to read or relax, the Book Nook is just the place. Check it out next time you’re here.
