A new library facility for the City of Charles Sturt, located on the corner of Port Road and East Street, Hindmarsh.
The building was designed to capitalise on south lighting, initially at street level on the road frontage and then repetitively with high level south light glazing in a saw-tooth concept across the building. The quality of natural light feeding into the library spaces is exceptional.
Design considerations were flexibility of layout, current and future IT requirements, longevity, staff comfort and ease of use for patrons. Various sections include children’s reading & activity area, adults lounge, public equipment facility, computers and staff workroom.
