Library in public and social facilities such as schools, mosques, churches and training centers has never become the main priority service unless it is intended accordingly. The good thing is, the library in such facilities always merges with other social functions such as special classes, gathering room or even dining room which is an addition to its original function: the reading room. Department of Architecture Universitas Indonesia, together with "Smandel 95 Berbagi Kasih Program" has conducted (has been conducting kalau aktivitasnya masih berlangsung) community engagement program, funded by the Directorate of Research and Community Engagement Universitas Indonesia, in an orphanage in Jakarta, namely Yayasan Tanjung Barat. The aim of this activity is to increase the occupant's hobby in reading without renouncing the original activities through an energy-efficient and biophilic concept. Software-based lighting simulation and biophilic intervention concept were conducted to get the optimum result, a part of the design development through multi-discussions with the occupants and observations. Through this study, the energy efficiency from lighting intervention and the biophilic design presence in this library can be increased by 59% and 69% respectively.
