17/08/2014 Building Excellence Awards 2014

Mackenzie Wheeler were twice finalists at this year’s building excellence awards for full architectural services provided for 2 public library schemes in The London Borough of Hillingdon. Harlington Library and Oak Farm Library were completed in October 2013 and form part of the practices’ Hillingdon Libraries portfolio. The portfolio includes all 15 of the borough’s libraries, identified as popular community hubs at a time when libraries across the country have been seen to close in response to financial pressures.

Rebranding the libraries was a challenging but ultimately rewarding exercise involving carefully considered architecture and interior design, integration of mechanical servic- ing, state of the art computer facilities, and comprehensive bespoke joinery design. The awards were presented in the Guildhall in May.
