Hymers College

10 October 2017

The new Learning Resource Centre at Hymers College was once the old gymnasium after being sympathetically refurbished it is now a flexible, multi-function adaptable technology-rich learning environment positioned at the heart of the school, with space for open-plan learning, a café and a multi-function hall and library.

Large open plan spaces are connected, with a dramatic triple height atrium at the centre. A sculptural helical stair in the centre wraps around the Librarian’s desk at ground level and help desk at first floor where the entire floor plates can be monitored by staff. The Library is acoustically zoned with the quietest study space taking full advantage of views across a covenanted green space.
