Replacement of Birmingham City Library

  • Comment

The Project seeks to replace Birmingham's Central Library, the largest and busiest public library in Britain, with an internationally unique centre for knowledge, learning and culture combining a new-build Library of Birmingham with the existing Birmingham Repertory Theatre. The new centre will form the northern side of Centenary Square sitting alongside Symphony Hall in the heart of the city, with foyers, catering, bars, conference rooms and a new 350 seat auditorium shared between the Repertory Theatre and the Library of Birmingham. The site consists of a combination of the existing Repertory Theatre and the adjacent car park. The footprint of the current open site will be increased by the demolition of the side extension to the Rep and the re-modelling of its frontage to achieve an effectively integrated building, of which approximately 31,000m2 will be new accomodation. The City Council seeks the provision of an Architect led composite Design Team to work alongside the Client Team to develop a design for the project to RIBA Stage D and obtain Planning Permission.

Project value: £145 000 000
