This mixed-use project is to redevelop Holborn Library on Theobald’s Road and the city block behind it in the heart of London’s Bloomsbury Conservation Area.
Our client U&I plc, has formed a private-public partnership with Camden City Council to unlock the site’s full economic, social and cultural potential.
The scheme will fully remodel the library, provide brand new employment studio spaces, deliver 105 new homes, and create new public spaces.
The proposals for the Theobald’s Road facade respect the existing library building and its positive contribution to the conservation area, while opening up new views into the library.
The life and activity of the library can be seen and views through Little Cockpit Yard to Cockpit Lane behind draw people into the site and give a sense of the varied activity in the site and of the wider Bloomsbury hinterland beyond.
F3GROUP’s division CONSTRUCT, are currently engaged providing pre-construction advice on the build-ability of the scheme.
