The new Ashford Gateway project was built over three floors and offers a one stop shop where residents can access a broad range of public services. This public library is just one of the services offered.
The white colour scheme was enhanced with brightly coloured edge lit acrylic, chosen by the architect, who required a totally design led solution for the entire building to offer a vibrant, welcoming public space. Bespoke furniture solutions included display units, reception desks and compact service desks.
Calypso shelving was installed in the library for its versatility at various heights. Single and double sided shelving units maximised the available space. Various end panel solutions enabled additional display points and iconic local images were used on end panels to create a real sense of community. The children’s’ area features bespoke furniture solutions in vibrant colours to attract younger patrons.
