This stencilled scheme was designed and created by Huning decorations from archive photos of the library. Some years after the work was completed the library suffered extensive water damage when the lead was stolen from the roof of the library.
We were asked to repair all damages to the coving. Damage included considerable loss of design, longitudinal cracks, areas of complete plaster loss through to the cavity behind and large areas of loose paint layers. All repair and surface preparation was carried out prior to mixing colours, recutting stencils and recreating the missing areas of design.
