The new £4.5 million Idea Store in Watney Market is designed by Bisset Adams as a vibrant mix of library, information, learning and community services for use by the local community. The building is designed as an accessible and highly visible centre for the community, with a landmark high performance glazed facade and green staircase visible externally and inviting visitors to the upper floors with library services. Internally the Idea Store is designed to be highly flexible; the ground floor ‘marketplace’ can be used for a range of different services and partners.
The project has received a BREEAM Very Good rating.
