FaulknerBrowns appointed to fit out Nottingham Central Library


FaulknerBrowns Architects have been appointed by Nottingham City Council, following a competitive tender process, to design the internal fit-out of the city’s new Central Library. Located in the new Broadmarsh Car Park building, the Council’s ambition is for the new facility to include “the best children’s library in the country.”


FaulknerBrowns have an international


reputation for innovation in library design. Their first library building built in 1963 – Jesmond Library in Newcastle upon Tyne – is now Grade II listed, “having influenced a generation of public libraries in the UK,” said the firm. Since then the practice has continued to “push the building typology to meet the changing needs of society.” The practice’s two most recent library buildings, Hebburn Central and The Word in South Shields, received national awards from the RIBA in 2016 and 2018 respectively. The Word “represents a real paradigm shift in the community library building typology,” said FaulknerBrowns, adding that it’s “a library for the 21st century, celebrating the dynamic relationship between people, books, traditional media and interactive technologies, in a truly inspiring environment.” The new announcement of a new


library in Nottingham marks further progress in the major development of the city’s Southside area. Contractors are on site at the Broadmarsh Car Park site, as well as work underway at intu Broadmarsh and Nottingham College’s new Skills Hub taking shape. Councillor Dave Trimble, portfolio holder for leisure and localities at Nottingham City Council said: “We have committed to building a new Central Library and the best children’s library in the country, and to bring on architects with the track record of FaulknerBrowns is exciting for the city. ” “The Word in South Shields is a fantastic building that has helped to regenerate the area and has brought more local people

into their library and more visitors from across the country, and we look forward to seeing the proposals they put forward for Nottingham.” Steve McIntyre, partner architect for FaulknerBrowns, said, “We are extremely


pleased to have this opportunity.” He added: “We are excited by the Council’s ambition to create a library for the future – a destination in the heart of Nottingham city centre to inspire visitors of all ages.”
