Northampton learning Demco

It's a multi-function space that redefines the traditional top down approach to learning and gives students a new media environment ready to be accessed via multiple docking points for laptops, plasmas, iPods, iPads and mobiles.

Steve Beasant, Demco library design consultant, worked with the library team and Gail Redmond, Environment Supervisor at the University, to create a flexible, informal space for students to participate, share and create information.

With no shelving or core library products in place, the project is a good example of Demco’s ability to design and develop spaces that are fluid and flexible and miles away from any traditional library design template.
