Odney Heritage Centre
North Star Security Consultancy Ltd were engaged to provide a design to secure the pattern viewing and archive centre for the internationally important textile collection. Odney Heritage Centre at Cookham links to a grade II listed building so it was important to the client that the security systems did not distract from the beauty of the building or collection.
The facility included specialised storage for the archive, viewing rooms, toilet and refreshment areas and allows access to the designs by people such as William Morris and Lucienne Day.
The mix of modern construction methods and traditional materials allows the building to reflect its contents and purpose, whilst ensuring that the delicate patterns are preserved for generations to come.
