West Norwood Library, LondonBack to Case Studies
The vibrant hub is the product of the Lambeth Council and Picturehouse Cinemas partnership. Our Patternistas collection was used to add a playful design element to the entire space and adds to the ‘home from home’ atmosphere. Design Concept used our leafy Secret wallcovering with bespoke woodland animal elements.
Suzanne & Chris Carpenter from Patternistas said “We loved creating the patterns that make up our Newmor collection and are particularly pleased that the range can be custom coloured and scaled to perfectly fit with customers interior design schemes.
Our Secret pattern is a large leafy repeat inspired by woodland walks and secret gardens and we were over the moon when Daniela Hislop of Design Concept requested a custom version of the design for West Norwood’s children’s library in London. Design Concept are specialists in the field of library design and they like to give every space something unique and uplifting. We were asked to incorporate illustrations of six woodland creatures into the large leafy pattern. We created the artwork for the fox, owl, squirrel, hedgehog, butterfly and ladybird and ensured that the client was happy with them before we placed them in the background. We then custom scaled the repeat so that the foxes stood atop the bookcases and repeated perfectly along the wall. Newmor offer stunning quality print, excellent customer service and very efficient turnaround times which meant that the paper could be installed in time for the opening. We’ve had lovely feedback from both children adults who seem to be enjoying the space immensely.”
We’re very excited to learn that the project has been awarded winner of Best Physical Space at Edge Conference in Edinburgh which rewards the positive achievements and library-based initiatives which celebrate the value of libraries.Back to Case Studies
