De Matos Ryan has created a distinctive series of new members' spaces in the
landmark Grade I listed British Library. This vivid series of newly repurposed spaces – including dedicated lounge, dining and work facilities – supports the new Members Programme and Cultural Agenda that the Library has launched.
Enabled by the simultaneous relocation and consolidation of staff facilities, including De Matos Ryan’s thoughtfully redesigned new staff restaurant and lounge, this represents the first stage in the Library’s eight year
visionary plan Living Knowledge. This development plan, leading up to the 50th
anniversary of the British Library in 2023, is designed to reinforce the Library’s
position as a global knowledge hub at the heart of an emerging cluster of world-class research institutions in the rapidly transforming King’s Cross area.
