Practical & inviting library refurbishment
Welland Park Academy is an outstanding school set in the picturesque town of Market Harborough. With space at a premium, Innova has successfully re-located the LRC to a smaller room – improving both the capacity and facilities to create a truly inspirational learning resource.
Welland Park was looking to invest in their learning facilities and create a positive environment for students to achieve their potential. Our brief was to create modern and flexible space which is both practical and inviting – to appeal to the younger and older students in the academy.
The academy wanted to develop two distinct zones – a purpose built IT space and an LRC to seat 30 students.
With careful planning and clever design, Innova worked closely with the academy to design and install a vibrant yet practical LRC with multi-functional zones to read, study, collaborate and socialise.
Library shelving units were designed to maximise space and integrate both book storage and display. Mobile shelving units provide the ultimate in flexibility and can be easily reconfigured to create zoned areas. The units were designed and developed with a curved design to provide a modern, contemporary twist to the standard book shelf. Down lighters were added to the perimeter book shelves to create a bright and welcoming atmosphere.
A designed ICT area was created to seat 10 students, with fully integrated cable management systems. Soft seating areas were introduced to encourage social interaction whilst providing space for students to relax.
The academy wanted to co-ordinate the colour scheme with an existing carpet. A hard-wearing natural beech was selected for the shelving units and tables to compliment the vibrant purple and green seating and flooring.
The new state-of-the-art library is now an exciting hub that motivates and inspires students to learn.
