Liverpool’s Central Library completes

Liverpool’s Central Library completes

Liverpool City Council expects visitor numbers at its Central Library to double when it reopens this May following a £50m restoration.

More than one million visitors are anticipated in the first 12 months to the library, which has been transformed into what is being hailed as one of the most modern, attractive and user-friendly libraries and records office in the UK.

Architects Austin-Smith:Lord have restored the Grade ll listed buildings and introduced new 21st century spaces. The project included the retention of the library’s historic façade while demolishing the 1950s sections to make way for a new five-storey building. This houses reading and information floors, café, meeting rooms, atrium and roof terrace and a purpose-built climate controlled repository to provide storage for the Liverpool Record Office where 14km of archives and some of the city’s most historic treasures from the last 800 years will be housed.

The historic Hornby Library and Oak Room will both be open to the public for the first time as will the sunken circular amphitheatre-style space in the basement of the Picton Library which will become the children’s Discover library.

The PFI restoration and redevelopment project was carried out by Shepherd Construction as part of the Inspire Partnership, a joint venture with International Public Partnerships.
