The Brief

We engaged with the library service and project team to ensure the clients expectations were fully met, along with the functionality and flexibility a modern library demands.

Design Comments – Iain Hazell, Project Creative Designer
“The modern library space needs to provide valuable services to all members of a local community.  Drawing from the project brief we looked to create a library space that was both welcoming and also showcased modern ways of using such a facility and it’s services. From making use of the large glazed areas of the building for relaxed reading areas, to quick access point for members of the public to use their laptops or other devices.  It was important bring together all aspects together in a functional environment.”

The Solution

The main part of the project was the Children’s Library which incorporated a space themed area, sensory Story Wall with an entrance archway, a variety of our Jigsaw and Coral Plus soft seating and a mix of reading tables and chairs.

The main library wanted flexibility, so the Landscape Library Shelving system was used with heavy duty castors to ensure ease of movement and reconfiguration as and when required. Dotted around the shelving and main area were various Elements display units offering a mix of display solutions.
