The Reading Nook

A nook can be defined as "a secluded or sheltered place or part". The Reading Nook, when approached unaware, passes as a simple pavilion overlooking the rich scenery below YangMing Mountain. Its true nature is revealed, through careful exploration, to be a library hidden in the mountain.

The exterior walls are jagged to mimic the various rock formations that stick out of the mountainside and the interior walls follow a similar pattern to give the user a feeling of being a part of the mountain.
