undefinedStelios Ioannou Learning Resource Centre

Deep underground, something is stirring...

The project in Nicosia was designed by the famous French architect Jean Nouvel and is named after the Greek Cypriot industrialist Stelios Ioannou. Due to its particular architectural character the project is expected to become a landmark, and place Cyprus on the world map of architecture.

Demco Interiors was commissioned to design, manufacture and install the innovative and unique library shelving over the five floors of the building. The volume of shelving across all floors offers uniformity and familiarity, creating an intuitive space for students. This design offers clarity and orientation to minimise the ‘where is’ and ‘how can I go to’ questions.

The shelving will house one million printed volumes, over 30,000 electronic journal titles, 150 databases and include over 900 study places equipped with the latest technology.

Demco’s world renowned steel library shelving – Cantilibra – was especially manufactured to incorporate unique features including a 25mm flat front profile shelf, a European styled square bracket and integrated end panel lightboxes. A combination of island and single sided grey steel shelving bays are clad in white, with additional feature LED lighting suspended into the framework across all the bays.
