The Georgian Library

Location:
Co. Down
Year:
2011
Size:
35sq.m
Materials:
Hardwood and painted surfaces, bronze handles

Tradition and detailing were high on the list for this fitted library situated in an old Georgian house. The traditional sense of a home library is apparent here in the way it moulds itself around doorways and windows and fits snuggly into corners. Refining the moulding profiles and meeting on-site physical demands are the kinds of technical detailing that needed to be just right for a continuous and elegant finish, fitting for its location.

We wanted to honour the Georgian style in creating a traditional home reading room

​We focused on tradition and detailing for this fitted library. We wanted to honour the Georgian style in creating a traditional home reading room. We created inviting reading snugs beneath the windows. The library moulds itself around the doors and windows, fitting beautifully into the corners of the room. 

Much of the work was in the craft and fit-out of this space. The hardwood, painted surfaces and bronze details reflect the quality and lightness of touch synonymous with Georgian interiors. Refining the moulding profiles and meeting on site physical demands are the kinds of technical detailing that needed to be just right for a continuous and elegant finish.
