Derbyshire Records Office //

Records office buildings sympathetically renovated to feature modern furniture that is fit for purpose.


Background

Situated in a Victorian building spread over 3 floors, the new-look Record Office brings Derbyshire’s fascinating past to life for residents, visitors and students. Four miles of original Derbyshire record can be viewed on the premises.


The Challenge

Much of the furniture and shelving required bespoke treatment, to fit with a very specific brief and to simultaneously enhance the interior whilst maximising the available space. It was essential that the research environment felt familiar and comfortable for visitors.


Our Solution

Moduflex designed and manufactured bespoke D 80 bench desking that was fitted with oversized tops in walnut, offering spacious platforms for research involving large scale archives. Each research room contained smaller D 50 desks for local study.
