Bournemouth & Poole College - North Road Campus

The client was looking for a fresh modern Library design to fit the newly designed campus at Bournemouth & Poole College.  The overall aim being to encourage students to spend more study time in the Library.

The location for the Library was an old hall with a high ceiling.  There was a need to divide the space into different zones, creating individual and group work areas, and devise a shelving layout which avoided straight lines.

We used large circular shelving arrangements to form curriculum clusters, providing the perfect solution for zoning the library.  Bright and distinctive colours and highlights were used to further define each zone, with a base of white and grey to tie it together.

Study pods with acoustic sound absorbing panels were used to assist with private group learning, and avoid students disturbing other users.  This meeting pace has proved extremely popular and these are available on a bookable basis.  The clean lines of our Latitude shelving system add to the sleek look of the Library.  Corner stools create shape and a place to sit whilst browsing. Modular easy seating was positioned around the edge of the room so social use would not disturb the central study space.
