University of Bath Library Extension

Client: University of Bath
Value: £2.7m
Duration: 2005 – 2007

Bath University wished to convert their existing library to a “24 hour study centre”, to provide an additional 550 reading spaces and computer terminals, to improve the overall quality of the working environment and to optimise the energy requirements of the whole building.

The Library occupies a strategic site at the heart of the University campus and the importance of its function and image are recognised in its open and expressive façade.
