It’s not just the books that make successful school libraries, the right layout, furniture, flooring, lighting and décor all contribute to creating a space that students will want to spend time in.
It’s essential to deliver fun and stimulating environments, if the space and furnishings are designed effectively, students are more likely to take books from shelves and sit and read them.
At Whitespace we offer a full turnkey service, from interior design and space planning to supplying and installing everything from ceilings and flooring to bespoke shelving and furniture, providing a mix of comfort and functionality in order to create a library which meets the needs of the school and the students.
Your experience with us starts with a detailed consultation; during this process we listen carefully to your needs, establishing how you plan to use the library. Will it be used for whole class visits, as a temporary classroom, story time for younger pupils, one-to-one reading, group study or independent learning, also, what type and how many books are going to be displayed and what type of furniture is required to achieve all of this? For school libraries to be effective they need to embrace the way students prefer to learn, not how you want them to learn. We will work with you to improve the student experience.
We know what makes school libraries successful and appreciate that for many schools and colleges’ space is at a premium. Every school is different, some have a clear vision and know exactly what they want, while others look to us for our knowledge and expertise. Using intelligent design we can deliver vibrant, welcoming spaces which students actually want to use. Whatever your requirements, we are confident that we can deliver a unique solution that suits all your needs, ultimately creating an area that is practical, comfortable and inspirational. As a result your library will look great and provide an exceptional environment for both you and your library users.
Our design and installation process will unlock the true potential of your space, whatever your objectives and budget.
We are proud of our continued success within the education sector and attribute this to our approach to the interior design, space planning and furniture selection. We have experience in working directly with schools and colleges, architects and main contractors across the North West.
