Floor plan of the Athenaeum
The frontage of this four-storey building is dominated by three tall windows, separated by four giant Ionic columns surmounted by a huge architrave.

The library and the reading room were located on the first floor with associated facilities.

Arches on the ground floor formed the entrance of the Athenaeum. The entrance hall led to an elegant staircase that climbed up to the reading room. On the first floor, this room was 50ft. long and 30ft. high. Its two circular recesses were separated by the main room by tall columns.

The reading room was decorated simply in a Grecian style. A café room, 30ft. long and 19ft. high, was also available on this floor.
