Imperial College Library

John McAslan + Partners designed two low-energy projects at Imperial College: the 4,000 sqm refurbishment and extension of Imperial's Libraries Building, including a music facility, and the 12,000 sqm refurbishment of the adjoining Sherfield Building. Extensive alterations and additions to the 1960s Library building clarified the building's programme, improved services, and delivered upgraded interiors and a new two-storey glazed roof extension, offering a lightness of touch in juxtaposition to the
concrete panelled building below. The Music and Arts Centre now provides a 250-seat auditorium, rehearsal spaces, a gallery, and offices.
