You may recall a survey and some design workshops for the soon-to-be revamped Youth Space occured over Summer.
A plan has now been devised for the Youth Space to be slightly extended, to include a dedicated group study space, and a lounge area for young people.
We recently visited a furniture showroom to ‘road test’ the chairs and were pretty happy with the results!
Fabrics for the lounge chairs
Laminates for the bench top and fabric for stools
Expect to see changes starting mid year, and further involvement from young people with the finishing touches!
Any comments welcome!
We want to know what youth in TTG want their space in the libary to be like. From our survey over the holidays, we know you want it to be comfy, a space for study and hanging out, relaxing, casual.
Our final workshop is on this Saturday to show some pictures of potential furniture, discuss layout and colours. Modern or retro, bright or muted, the choice is yours.
