LAMO House - Thomas L. Kelly

LAMO House

The library of LAMO. One central bay in the upper floor is left open and the roof above raised as a lantern, so that light can fall into the lower floor. On the south side, overlooking the courtyard, large windows and a traditional balcony (rabsal) allow winter sun to enter the building. On the east side window alcoves in the thick masonry walls provide seating for readers.
