Project Value: £2,000,000
Roehampton University Library was completed in August 2017 by Osborne. The joinery comprised an extensive furniture package with reception and study desks but centred around a complex acoustic panelling design with uncompromising aesthetics. Through working closely with the architect (Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios) our design team were able to ensure these aesthetic demands were met. The fully clad precast concrete staircase; the 6 metre long roof lights 13 metres in the air; and the 3 storey atrium all provided design, manufacture and installation challenges which WJL were able to resolve.
Following its completion, Roehampton University Library won first of all the London RIBA award, followed shortly afterwards with the national award.
