New Library Study Space, University of Sussex

The MacConvilles team are delighted to have created a new flexible and modern library study and collaboration space for Sussex University students.  Single desks area, group touch-down spaces as well as two separate larger group study rooms are equipped with full connectivity, fresh air ventilation and energy saving lighting schemes. Overcoming major obstacles such as ventilation and ceiling height the MacConvilles team created a scheme that transformed this former neglected archive store into a bright airy and accessible study space for this design and build contract.
