Smythe Library, Tonbridge School

 The 3.6 million refurbishment of a library at one of Kent’s most prestigious independent boy’s schools features Kawneer systems on a stunning new 13.5m high circulation tower. The systems were specified by the architect to drive a simple natural ventilation strategy and enable high levels of natural light and were installed on the south elevation of the 1962 building and also on a two-storey extension to the north elevation. The library was re-opened after a 14-month build by HRH Princess Alexandra.
