Oxford University’s New Bodleian Library is home to all written works published in the UK & the second biggest library in Britain. The challenge on this project was to create minimal stylish frameless glazing in keeping with the landmark buildings gorgeous stonemasonry.
We also provided interior & exterior fire protection on multiple levels consisting of fire rated doors & screens.
Coming through our entrance glazing & automatic doors you are surrounded by our frameless mezzanine, including link bridges connecting the main library to the historic archives.
Finally we installed various roof lights illuminating the entrance hall & protruding glazed balconies below.
Those sighted over the controlled document reading areas contained a special interlayer to prevent UV damage.
We at OAG are proud to have helped create a sleek & stylish way to store & study the U.Ks most prized published literature.
