Our Projects: St. George's Anglican Grammar School
The Laurence Library at St Georges Anglican Grammar School is a beautiful, renovated space that was designed to offer peace and quiet for those looking for a bit respite, as well as inspire productivity for study and collaboration. The library has large windows that let in natural light, comfortable furniture, and plenty of spaces to study or collaborate with others. It's the perfect place to get inspiration, study or just take a rest.
Our design consultant, Amanda, worked alongside the newly appointed Library Services Coordinator, Dr. Pedersen, to achieve an optimal environment that uses both books and technology. With reading bays beneath the windows between bookcases, lounges with integrated power, study booths and a combination of low and high tables, the space can accommodate many learning styles.
One of the new features was a bookable classroom with a flexible, multi-purpose layout.The S Shaped Lounge and round tables with writeable tops are perfect for collaborative projects. The tall timber benches with stools provide plenty of space for students to work individually or in groups. And finally, the combination of sled and swivel chairs facilitate the mobility of the furniture and make it easy to set spaces up.
The school celebrate the indigenous culture, therefore, the colourful Australian Aboriginal Textiles have been included as part of the new library furniture as the way to show their appreciation. The textiles are bright and vibrant, adding life to the library.
Many thanks to St. George's Anglican Grammar School for trusting this great project to us.
