SCEGGS Darlinghurst Libraries

Gadigal Country / Darlinghurst

SCEGGS Darlinghurst Interim Libraries required the refurbishment of the Primary and Secondary School libraries. The design for the Secondary School library doubled its original floor area by extending into under-used adjacent rooms for a new fiction and non-fiction collection as well as a research classroom. A mezzanine floor was constructed, creating an atrium with a sweeping timber veneer ceiling. The Primary School library design enclosed a breezeway and expanded into an earlier classroom. The Primary School design embraces the courtyard setting using tree foliage screens suspended from the ceiling and circular curtains, forming a semi- enclosing reading room.
