Huntingdon Library and Archive
Huntingdon Library is a major new civic building for the town and was an opportunity to improve the cultural and educational life of the town and make an exciting statement about its future.
The library wanted to become open and inclusive and this was an essential driver for the architectural plans.
A glass wall at the front of the building opens up the open plan interior to passers-by. Inside, the space is simple and lofty with tall floor-to-floor heights and an impressive staircase climbing to the first floor. The design of the library includes a feature tower, acting as a gateway to the town centre. The building includes a café and IT learning suite. On the first floor, the library includes BS5454-compliant facilities housing the Huntingdonshire Archive.
