Abbs Cross Library
Abbs Cross Academy and Arts College had recently had a new library built and therefore needed the interior fixtures, fittings and loose furniture space-planned and supplied to their particular brief.
The college wanted the new library to be open-plan and modern, giving students a chance to learn in a calm and peaceful environment.
The library needed to have specific areas including a quiet study area, general learning zone and also a large purposed ICT area where students could study using fixed screens.
The work needed to be carried out within a tight deadline and within the college’s specified budget.
The design that Brookhouse provided made clever use of the space available and provided a modern, bright and light open library.
New flooring and LED grid lighting and bright white decoration throughout created the fresh modern look that the college were looking for.
To keep the sight-line clear and to maximise the natural light coming into the room, the design incorporated mostly low-level book shelving/storage and the beech finish was carried through with new tables, benches and reception desk.
The ICT area included large tables, incorporating hidden compartments where screens could be hidden away or raised when needed and enabled the area to be multi-functional.
Abbs Cross were delighted with the finished result and the feedback from both teachers and students was extremely positive.
