Earlier this year MAKE undertook an interior refurbishment of New Lynn Library. A key element of the work was a reorganisation of the library layout, with shelving realigned to open up the library and create visibility through to the exterior environment. Furthermore, the previously solid bulk of the service desk was modernised through the creation of a new breathable, interactive service zone.
Interior colour selections are a nod to Crown Lynn Potteries, a key part of the local history of the area. Crown Lynn's colour glaze range inspired the vibrant shades of orange, teal and pale blue used throughout the library.
