Aylesbury Library

“I’ve been delighted with how the refurbished Aylesbury Library looks – the design and furniture works really well on a practical level and is also colourful and inviting, and helps create a really welcoming space which is what we wanted. Most importantly, we’ve had really positive feedback from our customers who especially love the new children’s section. “Lovely, light and bright” and “best place in Aylesbury” are amongst the many great comments we’ve been very happy to receive”.

David Jones, Head of Libraries and Culture, Buckinghamshire County Council.

Brief

The brief for this project was to create a practical and inviting refresh to the existing library that would appeal to the younger and older community, with particular focus to making the library dementia-friendly.

Solution

Working together with the client and our partner dealer, we developed concept ideas and designed a complete remodel of the library interior with an emphasis on providing a safe and engaging space. We focussed on various zones including child-friendly sensory areas, a bespoke story wall, purpose built IT space and traditional book promotion.

A combination of wooden and metal book shelving and display units added to the modern look of the Library, whilst bright and distinctive colours and clever graphics including signage created vibrant and themed zones.As a hub for the local community, key services were accommodated including study areas, computer suites, and self-service facilities.
