Canada Water

This landmark aluminium clad public library shaped like an inverted pyramid was designed by the architects CZWG to house 40,000 books and 2,500 DVD’s. FG Library worked with the design team on this £14 million project in Canada Water, London to provide the wonderful facility they have today.

The Challenge

Our task was to supply shelving and furniture solutions based on the architect’s specific vision. We merged modern and traditional themes in a functional space, whilst complementing the features of a building which centred around curves.

Our Solution

We met our brief by providing curved metal Reflection shelving with oak cladding, integral lighting and angled corner displays. This offered a dynamic solution that enhances the striking interior. We also supplied a number of bespoke furniture items including an oak veneer counter which was uniquely branded. The audio visual display units were designed to complement the curves and maximise the display potential of the extensive DVD collection.  We are particularly proud of the children’s’ area which featured a kinder boat in keeping with the Canada Water theme.
