Located on Theobald’s Road within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area, the site is currently occupied by Holborn library and Cockpit Arts, an award winning social enterprise and creative business incubator for designer-makers.
U+I are working on plans with award-winning architectural practice Coffey Architects having been selected in February 2016 by Camden Council as their development partner. The site will be completely redeveloped to provide new employment studio spaces, a fully-remodelled library and local studies archive facility, and new public spaces that will help to promote it as a creative hub for the community. The redevelopment will also deliver 105 new homes including new affordable units.
The redevelopment of the library and employment space will be provided at no cost to the public purse with the delivery of the public elements of the scheme funded by the sales of the private residential units.
