FEH Design loves libraries!

Our Library Space Planning Tool is an innovative solution that provides libraries with a detailed analysis of their space requirements. This tool has been designed to help libraries optimize their space usage and determine the most efficient space allocation for their collections, study areas, reading rooms, and other facilities.


The design of each library is a unique process that is tailored to the needs of its community. Libraries are facilities that are constantly evolving to keep up with the changes in services, media, and culture. A well-planned library is able to anticipate these changes and is flexible enough to accommodate shifting needs.
