Acomb Library Learning Centre

Architect: City of York Council
Client: City of York Council

Judges Comments: we found this a very refreshing, spirit-raising building. Architecturally, it is a modest performance, quite unassuming though quite contemporary in manner – appropriate to a village setting. Internally, the daylit library space is extremely attractive, a place to linger. Most important, however, is the way in which the idea of a public library is reinvented as a real community resource, with space for meetings and other activities.
