A prestigious project for a new library extension has been submitted for planning permission with Forest Heath District Council. The scheme for Newmarket Academy will create a new multifunctional first floor space and aims to inspire children and teachers alike to promote reading and literacy.
The design features a terraced seating area connecting the existing library to a new first floor, which will allow future seminar presentations to be held. An undercroft area minimises disruption to existing circulation routes across the school, providing a social gathering space along with the possibility for outdoor classroom use in the summer months.
We worked closely with Headmaster Nick Froy and Academy librarians to create a modern and light space which would be engaging and stimulating to its students.
