1.9 million pound refurbishment of the Grade II listed Maida Vale library in London

CAMAL Architects led the repair and refurbishment of this listed library which included the provision of new disabled access as well as the reconfiguration of the basement to accomodate a new Montessori Nursery school.

The library had been neglected for a number of years and the proposals included the addition of a new fully glazed lift to provide access to the library which previously required visitors to negotiate a large number of steps to reach it. A new historically researched interior paint scheme was specified and a nursery school with associated outdoor play space  was accommodated within the basement.
