The Carnegie Library & Galleries

ADDING TO AN AWARD-WINNING SPACE
Junckers Solid Wood Flooring for World’s First Carnegie Library
The Carnegie Library & Galleries in Dunfermline designed by Richard Murphy Architects features over 700m2 of Junckers solid oak flooring. The original library building and an adjacent former bank, both grade B listed, have been extended and integrated to form a spectacular, award-winning space. A new museum, gallery space, café, shop and reading rooms are linked to the original library building by an ‘internal street’ connecting new and existing spaces.
 
To provide a continuous backdrop as well as visually and aesthetically link the old and new parts, Junckers 15mm Wide Board Oak finished in Ultramatt lacquer was specified throughout the building. Junckers’ pre-finished solid wood floor offers a durable surface even for high traffic areas. The attractive grain pattern of the timber adds a natural element to the interior, which is flooded with natural light.
