<Third Floor Inner Sofa>
A combination of carrel-type desks and sofas.
The back of the desk serves as a partition wall to support the sofa’s back, effectively using space while incorporating the essence of the main reading area, which is its focal point. These are installed in the southeast and southwest corners of the third floor.
