Update renovation Library

Published: 04th August 2021 Last updated: 20th September 2021

The Library's renovation is in full swing and will continue until the end of September. During the renovation, the flooring will be replaced, the study café enlarged, new workstations created, and the collection partially relocated. In the meantime, the flooring is almost finished. Take a look at the progress!

The new floor is a sustainable carpet. For this new carpet we use pieces of carpet with small anomalies that would otherwise be thrown away at the production line.

Floor 0

On floor 0, this is red/yellow tones for the walkway and grayish/beige tones for the workstations.

The laying of the floor covering is always done in parts, after which some of the furniture is moved again.

Slowly the furniture will be put back in place and in the coming weeks the PC connections will be installed again.
