Somerville House – Seymour Library Refurbishment

Our Education team has transformed the existing Seymour Library into a flexible space that supports Somerville’s vision of being an education leader.

The brief was to more effectively accommodate enrolment growth and create additional flexible learning areas. We’ve designed dedicated study spaces, meeting rooms and an Academic Research Centre, which will provide the opportunity for increased student exhibitions and collaboration.

Our design includes two mezzanine levels in place of the existing void, which has increased the existing library space by 537m2.

ThomsonAdsett is proud to be recognised by the Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), with this project being recently shortlisted in the Institutional category.

The IDEA is Australia’s largest and most successful independent design awards program. Launched by inside magazine in 2003, the program celebrates the best of Australian interior and product design across 13 categories and five Special Awards.

Award winners and commendations will be announced at the IDEA Gala Party on November 23, 2018 in Sydney.
