Ledbury books Architype for library job

  • Comment

Sustainability architect Architype has won the competition to design the £2.9m St Katherine’s Library in Ledbury, Herefordshire.

The competition - for a site that contains buildings dating back to the 13th century - attracted a large number of entries including designs by Feilden Clegg Bradley, Richard Murphy, Davies Sutton and Panter Hudspith. 

The winning design is for ‘an overtly 21st century building with a strong connection to Ledbury’s heritage’ and aims to be Ledbury’s first ‘Passivhaus’ standard building.

Construction of the new library is due to start in 2010.  

Councillor Adrian Blackshaw, Herefordshire Council’s cabinet member for economic development and community services, said: ‘As a council we are fortunate that the process attracted so many quality expressions of interest. We particularly liked Architype’s approach to both the site as a whole and how the new building can be built in a sustainable way.’
