Exceptional Library Design

The Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL) support and promote excellence in academic libraries across the UK. ADP’s Augustine House, the landmark Library and Student Services Centre at Canterbury Christ Church University has won the SCONUL Library Design Award, which will be considered at the upcoming SCONUL Library Design Awards and Showcase at the new Birmingham Library. 

Pete Ryan, Head of Library Services at Canterbury Christ Church, is speaking on how the library fits within the overall strategy for the University. He has invited Roger FitzGerald, the ADP partner who led the design for the project, to tell the story of the design process from developing the brief to understanding the site, and responding to both. Mark Ridgewell, ADP’s Interior Design Director will outline how we used the power of interior design to create a library that works. 

ADP will also have an exhibition stand so, if you’re coming to the event, do come and see us (we’ll even throw in a chance to win a bottle of champagne!).
