Feeling Library is an interactive installation designed by architectural firms Caukin Studio and Skip Gallery. It's a pop-up library built to explore and share our feelings through a blank, specially prepared journal. This room, which is no more than 3 square meters, is designed to provide an opportunity for humans to connect with themselves and others.

Looking like a haystack stranded in London, the installation is an attempt by local community agencies to provide a personal space to improve the mental health of nearby residents. In support of this campaign, Caukin Studio is working with the Self Space therapy service to provide suggestions that translate into the form of installations. To facilitate visitors, The Feeling Library provides books written by therapists and a private space to express feelings by writing.

From the outside, Feeling Library looks unique with natural ingredients. The structure is built using wood and thatched roofs, it stands out against its modern background full of glass and iron buildings. When entering the Feeling Library, visitors are invited to experience as if entering a forest full of knowledge through a bright blue door that depicts the bright sky. Here, Caukin Studio uses pink artificial lighting to help evoke the mood.

The interior is filled with tones of colors and natural materials, such as wood to create a comfortable and safe atmosphere, so they feel confident enough to talk about their mental health. Completing the function of a library, Caukin Studio added a simple wooden bench along with a folding table to journal in a quiet private room. A piece of furniture that must be in a library is a bookshelf, to perfect this installation, Caukin Studio specially designed a wooden bookshelf placed on the side of the wall.
Feeling Library is even more perfect when greenery adorns and adds a sense of coolness to the room.

Built with reusable materials or naturally biodegradable materials, Caukin Studio designed this Feeling Library installation using a wooden structure assisted by bolts to strengthen the structure. After three weeks, the Feeling Library installation will be dismantled, then the thatched roof will be processed into compost, while other materials will be sent to the Harris Academy school for reuse.
