Case Study: Science Museum Library by Coffey Architects

Design Insider caught up with Lee Marsden and Michael Henriksen of Coffey Architects to talk inspiration about their recently completed project at the Science Museum which has just been shortlisted in the Surface Design Awards 2018 as part of their interior of the year category.

The project has transformed the once unused space of the science museum into a stunning library which can be used by all. Making wonderful use of the abundance of natural light, Coffey Architects created a thin steel screen over the giant windows which drew its inspiration from the tree canopy Isaac Newton may of sat under, the design also gives reference to the Jacquard loom punch cards that are considered an important step in the history of computing hardware.
