Bisset Adams acted as the Architect and Lead consultant on a Heritage Lottery Funded £2 million refurbishment and new-build extension to York Explore Library Learning Centre. This high profile commission to create a modern purpose-built PD5454 compliant repository provides an appropriate new home for the internationally significant York City Archives and will be an accessible and inspirational ‘Gateway to History’.
The new repository is of modern design with a design of angled bronzed boxes as a linking device between old and new. The project involved extensive consultation with English Heritage and local conservation groups.
