This well loved and widely used Carnegie Grade II listed library building has recently been refurbished to the delight of the local community.
The brief was to create an attractive and flexible space for current users, attract new users and community partners. Demco’s winning design had to meet the changing profile of the local area and bring the space bang up to date in user expectations and needs. Community spaces, improved IT, accessibility, literacy, younger and older audiences were all included with colour themes, furnishings and clever zoning creating a space ‘for everyone’.
A dedicated children’s area includes the much loved Demeo ‘tepee’ – “it has been really successful … it really sets the room alight” and the popular storytime curved wall units.
