Plans for a state-of-the-art library in Marylebone have been submitted jointly by Westminster Council and architects Child Graddon Lewis and Bisset Adams.
The £12m scheme would provide a much improved library, cafe, exhibition space and computer study areas on Luxborough Street in Marylebone, and would also include nine flats for private sale located on three storeys above the library.
The plans follow a period of extensive consultation with local residents and library users which has been on-going since 2009. In line with feedback, the proposals also include features such as better security for the building, the creation of an entrance to the library from the park, and the relocation of cycle space to reduce the impact on local residents.If planning permission is granted, the library would open its doors in Spring 2015, and would replace the current Marylebone Library on Beaumont Street.
