Farrell to masterplan British Library site

  • Comment

The British Library has awarded Terry Farrell and Partners the contract to masterplan its 3.6ha site in central London

Farrells beat off competition from over 30 major firms to land the contract, which will see the practice submit plans to develop an estate masterplan, and could potentially lead to extensions to the existing Colin St John Wilson-designed building.

Terry Farrell said: ‘It is a privilege to have been appointed architectural partner on this masterplan. I am determined to work with the library to ensure that it will retain its rightful place at the heart of British cultural and academic life.’

Since 2002, Farrells has been involved with an ongoing study for the Greater London Authority to improve the Euston Road area of the capital.

The only major external work to have taken place since the building was originally completed in 1997 was the construction of the British Library Centre for Conservation, designed by Long and Kentish and opened in 2007.

Farrells’ plans will be presented to the British Library Board in September.
