University of Edinburgh Noreen and Kenneth Murray Library

Austin-Smith: Lord LLP

The Library is a new studying and social hub on the campus, a landmark building providing a dynamic array of teaching and learning environments with the backdrop of the Campus Green.

Austin-Smith:Lord has developed a design with a two-storey ‘Podium Hub’ on the lower levels with a cafe, soft study and meeting areas for discussion and debate. On the higher levels there are a series of quieter and acoustically separated study spaces. There also exists an opportunity for an outdoor study environment on a second floor roof terrace area overlooking the Campus Green.
