Emmanuel College - McAuley Library
Emmanuel College Warrnambool is a dynamic Catholic learning Community that is growing its reputation as an education leader, and we are proud to have worked with them over a number of years.
The McAuley Library is an exciting and welcoming space with many different collaborative and focus areas, for both staff and students. The refurbished building includes modern spaces for classes, a relaxed area for students wishing to study or have a game of chess, and functional spaces for small group work.
We were approached by the College in August 2020 with the opportunity to submit a proposal for their McAuley Library Space. Our Design and Customer consultants worked with the Principal, Business Manager and Library Coordinator from Emmanuel, and Cirillo Architects to define their requirements and understand their vision for the area.
Our wide range of products enabled us to provide the right furniture for each area. The Asti Chair range and I.AM Table family by Thinking Works provided a cohesive flow through the different spaces, allowing for creativity with the colours and shapes of the soft furnishings. We were able to use the Asti range for stools, student chairs and mobile chairs in the meeting spaces, both with Seat pads and fully upholstered styles.
Some of the Soft furnishings we used in the Library space include:
A highlight for us was being able to provide custom shape Tables for the Booths and specific meeting room requirements, and custom ottomans for the library shelving. Our Australian manufacturing enabled this to be done easily and matched to other furniture being supplied.
Office Line are honored to have worked with Emmanuel College and Cirillo Architects on this awesome learning area, a centre where Emmanuel’s students will continue to grow and learn. We want to congratulate them on their choice of colours – it took time to get this right and it was definitely worth it! The finished project is stunning.
