Shankhill Road Library is a listed Edwardian library, refurbished in 2011 to upgrade facilities, while respecting its historic status. 

As part of the refurbishment programme, Opus Mosaic was commissioned to restore and repair the mosaic flooring which is a key feature of the spacious original entrance hall, large sections of which were missing. 

Based on surviving original fabric, we created full sections of floor to match the original mosaic entrance, taking care with complex areas of interlocking patterns.  New border sections were installed to fill the reconfigured space using new material.  Reclaimed material was sensitively re-used in transition between original and new sections.
