WADHAM COLLEGE OXFORD LIBRARY ALTERATIONS

New office and reception to the entrance level of the library.

The refurbishment of the Library entrance area was carried out in the summer of this year with Beard as main Contractor. The work included providing a new office / reception area and disabled WC for the Librarians and Readers of Wadham College.

 

The re-design was made in close collaboration with the College to achieve a multi-functional and inclusive design to incorporate a self issue machine, book drop box and touch screen on an automatic rise and fall desk, which enables Readers to view the Colleges collection of rare books electronically.

 

The alterations have provided the College with a much needed light and airy office for the Librarians to work within the heart of the Library, with a design that works in harmony with the existing building.
