CLIENT - DORSET COUNTY COUNCIL
This is a modest, yet extremely important extension to an existing community library. The design for an IT facility uses a contemporary simplicity to complement the existing timber framed building.
The timber clad box is naturally lit via rooflights, with the light controlled internally to avoid reflections and glare on computer screens. Natural light, artificial light and ventilation are all integrated in the grid of the floating ceiling.
The timber cladding is carefully detailed using galvanised steel framing.
