undefinedLichfield Street Library

Modern, fresh and accessible

The refurbishment incorporates the library, learning centre and the local history centre in Walsall.

Working on behalf of the main contractor, Wilmott Dixon, Demco Interiors interpreted CPMG Architects’ vision to design, manufacture and install elements within the new interior.

Modern, fresh and accessible the new space blends old and new by combining different genre, eras and materials creating a space bringing its own story bang up to date. An example of this is the beautiful moulded ceiling on the first floor gallery which has been carefully and sympathetically restored. The gallery is light, airy and fresh with Demco’s classic Cantilibra steel library shelving system specified at low level and finished with stylised graphic end panels.

Retro styled furnishings in shades of teal, yellow and purple add colour and contrast against the ornate arched ceiling. Large format oak tables provide plenty of space to work at fixed PC’s, and small writing tablets are available for anyone who wants to work from one of the sofas.

Demco provided a bespoke joinery package including the built in Archive feature wall, display and book unit. With its warm timber finish, built in lighting, innovative displays and ‘finger pointing’ graphic it creates a statement on the end wall.
