In pictures: Penoyre & Prasad wins Kent uni library contest

  • Comment

Penoyre & Prasad has won the competition to design the new £12 million extension to Templeman Library at Kent University, Canterbury

Working with Max Fordham, Price & Myers and Fabrik Landscape design, the team saw off competition from finalists Hawkins\Brown, BDP, Shepheard Epstein Hunter and Associated Architects to land the project (designs pictured above).

As well as adding a 5,200sq m extension to the existing library, the scheme will overhaul the original William Holford-designed building which was built in three phases between 1965 and 1990.

According to the practice the façade of the proposed extension ‘inverts the balance of the original brutalist styling of the building to create a strong and holistic architectural identity.’

Construction is due to complete in September 2014.
