Swiss Cottage Library

In 2003, John McAslan + Partners completed the remodelling of the Grade II listed Swiss Cottage Library, designed by Sir Basil Spence in 1962-64. The practice was appointed in 2000 following a two-stage selection procedure and developed the proposals in partnership with Camden Council and a multi-disciplinary design team.  The Library is at the heart of the Swiss Cottage site's long term redevelopment, a major project which embraces new residential, leisure and cultural facilities.  The Practice's approach has been to expand the Library's key community assets and creative possibilities while protecting the building's special architectural interest.
