Library Refurbishment Phase I, Teesside University
Following on from the previous successes at Teesside University, we secured the commission to refurbish the library on the Middlesbrough Campus.
The key design objective was to create an inviting library that interacted with the campus more successfully, particularly at ground floor level. This is achieved by the interior design strategy which uses a contemporary palette of materials and a focused colour strategy. These elements contribute towards an engaging learning environment whilst enhancing the ambience of the library.

The application of colour within the building gives an holistic sense of identity, highlights key spaces and assists in wayfinding. Each floor is allocated a base colour: green, pink, blue, turquoise and orange. Colour is subtly applied within the core atrium space in order to depict the levels and relate to the activities on each floor. The base palette for the ground floor is supported by a selection of complimentary tonal variations, which adds to the visual impact and overall aesthetics. Each zone is highlighted to enhance visual identity and colour association, this is further enhanced by the application of materials and particular consideration to floor finish, walls, feature furniture, lighting and graphic identity.
