Upholstery Solutions recently completed commercial upholstery for the refurbishment of the Fisher Library in the University of Sydney. The four story, multi-million dollar project is part of the University of Sydney's outstanding campus renewal program. The new program of architectural revitalisation is designed to create a series of links between previously disparate learning areas: formal, informal, indoor, outdoor, collaborative and individual.
The Fisher Library, once a shabby and forbidding cloister, has been opened up to establish a light-filled room of inviting spaces. No easy feat in a multi-story academic building.

The completed Fisher Library can be visited at the University of Sydney, Eastern Avenue, Sydney. If you have any questions about this project, please contact us.
