Learning Resource Centre, University of Ulster, Magee Campus
- Project Details
- Image Gallery
The project was awarded within a winning UK–wide restricted design competition. Our response incorporates over 600 networked reader spaces and 700 linear metres of bookstacks over three levels, arranged around a central open atrium. Noisier café, group study and ancillary spaces are isolated from these main reading rooms, in a block above the main issue desk area. Panoramic views over the River Foyle are through a highly glazed east façade which has been ‘engineered’, with a bespoke designed solar shading system as part of a passive ventilation philosophy – a first within a major building in Northern Ireland.
