High Heaton Library

Williamson Faulkner-Brown & Partners

Built in 1968 and designed by Williamson Faulkner-Brown & Partners, the library follows in the footsteps of similar libraries from the practice, notably Jesmond and Wallsend library. Key features include a saw-toothed glazed facade and circular layout internally almost identical to Jesmond Library. The unique glazing features stone insets that break up the large glazed facade externally and house books internally.

Demolished in 2007, the library was replaced with a new slightly larger library.
