The Queen’s College, Oxford

Queen’s College, Oxford opened The New Library this year to great acclaim. MICA Architects introduced a handsome, purposeful below-ground book and study facility whose extensive skylighting allows views of adjacent College buildings and provides generous natural light.

Aktiva’s A-Line desk and B-line bookshelf fittings are the main lighting features of The New Library. The 17th C.Upper Library’s and the 19th C.Lower Library’s bookshelves are also fitted with B-Line lights from earlier refurbishments, demonstrating the design’s timeless or period versatility.
