Ringwood Library
by Edmond & Corrigan Pty Ltd

    

IN THE ARCHITECTS WORDS

This new public building and retail precinct is located in the heart of Ringwood Shopping centre. This was to enable easy public access and use.
     This scheme was conceived in difficult times as a positive civic investment in the future for the City of Ringwood. It was located within parking area serving established activities, e.g. the Coles Myer shopping
 
 

centre and strip retail. The library is set piece which provide a civic focus.
     It is a public building with an associated retail development, and a car park to provide a cash flow to the council. The library building (established on axis to Melbourne Street) and the adjacent development, shape and enhance public space and provide a civic architectural image.
