George Green Library wins ‘Highly Commended’ Concrete Award November 30, 2018

George Green Library won a ‘Highly Commended’ Concrete Award at a ceremony in London last Thursday.  From a shortlist of 15, the Library was 1 of 5 projects selected.


The judges commented that the project was “not just a refurbishment but a reinvigoration of a tired 1960s concrete structure that functions excellently for its intended purpose. The extension does not intend to mimic the existing structure but has created an adaptable well-used learning environment lacking in the original. The simplicity of the refurbishment and extension belies the complexity of the design and execution. An excellent example of reinvigoration.”
