FaulknerBrowns Architects were commissioned by Sheffield Hallam University to design an academic library which would bring together new technologies and learning methods in an inspirational and innovative building. The brief for the scheme was developed in close dialogue with the client body led by the librarian to create flexible and inviting learning spaces which would encourage both individual and group study. The library spaces provide access to both electronic information as well as traditional library services.

The aspirations were to create a place with spatial quality and interest, capable of accepting current and future technologies within a student friendly space. The library received a SCONUL award which recognises excellence in functional design for users and library staff.
