The proposed design acknowledges the important Heritage of the site, while brings a combination of vibrant appealing spaces that will improve Acton’s local community life.
Old Acton Library is a Grade II listed building with a red-brick ornate façade fronting Acton High Street. The proposal is to revive the unused building as a community arts hub connecting local people and businesses to help in the regeneration of the borough.
By using some strategically localized double height areas, a more fluid relation between programs will be achieved; The characteristic front round window will lean out the space, as the main existing feature, strengthening the Old Library building identity. The program includes two cinemas, a Ground floor Bar/café in the street frontage and creative workstations in the upper floors.
