Libraries and study spaces can be hubs of learning. There to support your educational vision and your students drive for knowledge.
Requirements vary, from a sixth form study room, to individual, group, or open plan spaces, to a library serving a thousand pupils. Your space may also need to be flexible, serve multiple needs.
How tempted students are to be there is the key. A stimulating learning environment will get them talking about books, choosing for themselves, studying by themselves, or with their friends.
Your ethos is a driver, alongside physical aspects such as space, colour, furniture, mobility. Learning experiences are influenced by design.
Havens For Learning
When they feel they belong in a place, students actively engage. Customised areas for different age groups can help, or zoning with contrasting colours.
Carpets and furnishings can be chosen to be welcoming and again, to differentiate. Modular tables and mobile bookcases can allow speedy changes for different groups throughout the day.
Using design to signal usage aids concentration, study and flexibility. You could choose study booths, or colourful dens for younger children around a library perimeter, with easily reconfigured space at the centre.
A flexible, modular approach can include other benefits. Height adjustable desks to accommodate wheelchair users, furniture to support varying activities simultaneously, reading, research, discussion.
Core Study Facilities
An infinite choice on configuration helps create an energising, student centred facility. Library and study areas still need further elements.
Good acoustic design can ensure concurrent use by individuals and groups without disturbance. Ample power, wireless, or other networking resources avoid downtime and aid focus.
Lighting can be installed to support multiple functions, from computer use, to co-working, to quietly reading a book. Window blinds, or subtle elements used as dividers add to environmental support.
Safe, adjustable, multi-functional shelving will help, along with seating and desks designed for purpose. Contemporary, comfortable furniture is welcoming, part of meeting your educational aims.
