New Lynn, Auckland
A key element of the refurbishment of New Lynn Library was a reorganisation of the layout, with shelving realigned to open up the library and create visibility through to the exterior environment. The previously solid bulk of the service desk was lightened 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.
