University of Greenwich Drill Hall Library, Medway Campus

The project required us to explore how the existing library accommodation in this grade 2 listed building could be adapted to include new technical interaction spaces for group working, the creation of a social zone that provided refreshment and coffee facilities, the provision of new RFID self service issuing and automated document sorting on return, and the improvement of computer touchdown spaces and loan facilities within the library.

Studies and visits to a number of university and local libraries provided the source of information for the brief for the group working spaces and with the library’s IT staff we developed the designs for an innovative ‘Techno booth’study space.
