Lambeth Palace Library, Lambeth

This scheme involved the provision of a new library building and restoration facility for the internationally significant Lambeth Palace Library. The site, within the Lambeth Palace complex, is covered by a number of heritage designations. The new premises balance the need for public accessibility with the appropriate storage of a large collection of rare books and manuscripts. Close to the River Thames, there was also a need to consider London View Management Framework views and views of and from the Palace of Westminster World Heritage Site.
