Design overhaul at London Library

The London Library, based in St James’s Square, is considering appointing design consultancies to work on branding, wayfinding and signage initiatives, to bolster its most significant redevelopment project since 1896.

The subscription-based library is currently working with architect Haworth Tompkins to refurbish a connecting building located in Mason’s Yard, which the library acquired last year. The scheme is currently waiting to receive planning permission.

The London Library was founded in 1841 and holds more than a million volumes, covering the humanities, with particular emphasis on literature and history.
