Sustainable design principles and innovative high performance environmental systems inform design decisions to ensure our libraries are integrated, state-of-the-art community hubs. Notably, our Surry Hills Library
project was awarded the UDIA Excellence in Sustainable Design award and the Australian Timber Design Awards Public Building High commendation. In addition, Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre
sets a new benchmark in sustainable design through the adaptive reuse, salvage, recycling and renovation of the existing Bankstown Town Hall.
fjmt has successfully completed many award winning libraries in both the public and academic realm. fjmt libraries serve to both offer an intellectual archive for individual study and create a rich spatial experience for communities. We acknowledge that libraries are not just a repository for books but as valued cultural assets for communities. Our library designs create inviting and accessible places for community members and visitors to interact, gather and participate in local programmes.
fjmt’s team of library specialists understand the need to design libraries that accommodate information convergence (ie. digital and analogue) and are responsive to consistent technological and digital advancements. Our collaborative methodology, allows us to leverage resident knowledge and develop a deep understanding of the contextual framework in which the library will reside.
