YR HEN LYFRGELL

Yr Hen Lyfrgell (The Old Library) is Cardiff’s Welsh Cultural and Language Centre, occupying the old Central Library on The Hayes.  As Principal Designer for the building’s transformation, Ongl developed a holistic interior scheme for the multi-use Grade 2* listed building.  Home to ‘Siop Bodlon’; Milk&SugarCardiff Story Museum; and Mela Media, along with Adult-Learning Teaching Rooms; Conference facilities and Function Rooms for hire – the centre showcases the best of Welsh culture, produce and language in Cardiff.  The interior design is a composition of clean geometric lines and shapes, in bright colours, with industrial galvanised steel, birch plywood and edge-lit acrylic details; intent on breathing new life into an old city-centre building.
