Hamilton Town House - Library

Coltart Earley Architecture

Hamilton Carnegie Library is a Category A Listed Building built in 1908 as the first of three buildings forming the Townhouse Complex. The concept behind the renovation of the library at Hamilton Town House is exposure, the ability to create a facility where visitors encounter and discover new influences and opportunities to learn, develop and grow in a welcoming environment. The discovery of the original Carnegie Lecture Theatre presented us with the opportunity to recreate one of the original spaces within the library utilising reproduction plasterwork taken from the remaining damaged ornate plasterwork and columns.
