Take a closer look at what we’ve done.
KCG - 198 Scape Reading Room/Library
The vacant room on the street level of Scape Student Accommodation, Swanston Street side, was converted into a new reading room by Kingdom Constructions Group. The high ceilings allowed us to create a spacious and open study hall, though made accessibility one of the forefronts of the project.
The previously empty, stand alone room was tied into the existing adjacent skyscraper, cutting through the concrete wall and floor and constructing a new staircase to create easy access from within Scape. Street access remained, fitting off a new glazed aluminium door which leads into a quiet area with desks and shelving for students. Autex pin boards line the walls of the room with LED lights installed behind the pin boards to generate a 3D wall effect.
The final product is a contemporary deep blue themed reading room for students to study and relax after a long day of university and the two points of access facilitates maximisation of the room for both staff and students.
