Haworth Tompkins Selected For Lambeth Archives Feasibility Study 29.08.18

Haworth Tompkins have been selected to lead a feasibility study commissioned by London Borough of Lambeth, to deliver a new Archive on a council-owned site at 301-303 Kennington Lane. Since 1890, the Lambeth Archives have been situated in the Minet Library building, which has several limitations to its continued use that include accessibility and functionality. The council’s vision for the Lambeth Archives is to develop a new archives service fit for the 21st century in line with national archiving standards. A new high-quality building of notable environmental quality aims to have a strong civic presence and take advantage of the site’s location and good public transport connections.
