Library of Birmingham

Library of Birmingham

The new £188m Library of Birmingham opened to the public this week. A landmark building and the biggest of its type in Europe, it’s been described as ‘a revelation’.

We were asked to design a website for the Library, condensing the variety of services on offer into a website with a focus on accessibility and usability. Project management and build were carried out by Birmingham City Council and Service Birmingham.

The Library of Birmingham already has a strong and varied programme of events lined up, so clear listings were key. In addition, as part of its role supporting Birmingham’s community libraries, the site allows users to discover events at other libraries around the city.

In related news, a mention is due to another of our clients. Birmingham REP have been away from their building for over two years while redevelopment has taken place. They return home to a refurbished building which includes a new 300-seat auditorium and an extended public foyer connecting them to the Library of Birmingham.
