Library Refurbishment Phase II, Teesside University

The phased refurbishment of Teesside University’s central library aimed to re-establish the building as a key campus facility which has a pivotal role for every student and visitor..

We were asked to design the new state-of-the-art library which provides a central resource for all faculty areas, and a popular ICT resource which is open for significantly extended hours.

The second phase of this transformational project completely reinvents the first floor of the building. A rich variety of group-working and collaborative environments encourage innovative use and thinking.

The removal of cellular spaces and the introduction of large, full-height windows in each corner of the building flood the internal space with daylight allowing fantastic views out over the campus.
