North firm's library contract.

NEWCASTLE-based Ryder Architecture has been appointed to redesign Manchester City Library. The proposals for the Grade II* listed library are designed to increase access to the collection and provide a much greater range of library services.

The project is part of the redevelopment of the Manchester Town Hall complex, estimated at pounds 165m, improving services to the public and investing in key civic buildings and spaces.

This appointment follows the success of Ryder''s award winning Newcastle City Library with developer Kajima Partnerships completed in March 2009, and a recent commission from Devon County Council for the interior design of six libraries in a joint venture with Radford-HMY Group.
