What we did
The building is a post-war wooden building constructed from Canadian timber and as some of the walls were loadbearing, we had to install a steel beam to ensure the structure was safe. The client asked us to utilise their existing metal frame library shelving system, which we combined with Quattro library units. To create relaxed reading zones, we supplied circular Cosmo chairs in blue, purple and yellow fabrics to compliment the school’s existing library furniture. A curved purple welcome desk was added for the librarian and a point where books could be returned.
For individual studying and class-based learning, we provided purple and blue EN classic chairs along with IT benching. A Merlin operator chair, Euro workstation and pedestal was included at the back of the room so that the teacher can easily oversee the students. In the common room, we supplied a variety of circular Cosmo pouffes in a similar colour scheme as the furniture in the other 2 rooms.
