- Library wins Development of the Year award
- Days after the handover to Renfrew Council, Johnstone Town Hall was named ‘Development of the Year (Public Buildings)’ at the Scottish Property Awards.
An extraordinary building inside and out
This building, with its combination of a striking glass façade, deep public atrium and high quality stone finishes, stands out from the surrounding buildings in Ludovic Square where it has been designed as a catalyst for a wider regeneration programme for the town. It creates a new model for the delivery of community services as the public library, theatre, marriage suite, conference room and café sit alongside staff from the council’s housing and social work departments, AdviceWorks, Police Scotland and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Thedesignconcept was instrumental in the design of this library together with the flooring, lighting and graphics to ensure the delivery of a cohesive design, working closely with the architects Holmes Miller and members of the library staff.
