Marylebone Library

University of Westminster

Working closely with University of Westminster, Rock Townsend completed a Summer Works project to further develop the library at the Marylebone Campus. The project concentrated on the 2nd & 3rd Floors of the library, delivering new balcony spaces and a series of new individual and group study areas, complete with specialist furniture, alongside interventions to improve natural light and environmental performance.

Following Rock Townsend’s initial library first floor refurbishment as part of the wider Marylebone Campus redevelopment, the team worked with the University to re-invigorate the Library at 2nd & 3rd Floors.

Offices, work spaces and shelving were re-organised to provide a greater number of fresh, new workspaces for group, individual and silent working, accompanied by state of the art ICT facilities, providing an advanced learning environment.

All finishes have been updated along with introduction of state of the art lighting and contemporary glazing.

Works were carefully co-ordinated with the contractor and client to minimise disruption and ensure programme was met.
