The Templeman Library sits at the heart of the Canterbury campus and has been transformed to become a flagship 21st century learning environment comprising a new extension and extensive refurbishment of the existing building, together demonstrating new standards for renewal of 1960’s university buildings.
The 5,400m2 extension provides a lecture theatre, seminar, exhibition, archive, conference, study and café spaces. The building has received new welcome hall, windows and facade.
