The Brief

Woodseats library forms part of a new community hub, offering a contemporary and inviting space for everyone. The library caters for all demographics – this is represented well by the variation in seating on offer; from high to low, comfortable to practical. Whether reading a newspaper or accessing desktop PCs, there really is something for everyone. A ‘bring your own device’ area with charging units adds new appeal to the library.

The Solution

Latitude shelving was specified in striking finishes of graphite and contrasting orange accents, the green angled seats add shape to the shelving runs. Photography for the graphic panels was taken locally, including some of nearby Graves Park – every last detail was meticulously considered.

The children’s library has huge wow factor and features a bespoke tree which can be used at desk or sitting height. Bright colours give an ultra-modern feel and are complemented by the natural light perfectly. Our hideaway units provide excitement for children of all ages and give an opportunity to hide, with a book in hand.

Since it’s opening in August 2017, the library already has a reputation as a state of the art facility – the community hub has quickly become the city’s flagship public amenity.
