Date 2014 (planning)

The new Headquarter building for the Woolf Institute provides a much needed study and research facility as well as seminar spaces and residential accommodation.

It is situated within the grounds of Westminster College, an Arts and Crafts style Grade II listed building. The new scheme brings together echoes of the surrounding architectural language with a state of the art research facility.

The proposed new building will enable the Woolf Institute to double its number of students and increase its range of public education programmes. The built-for-purpose facility, designed to foster a collegiate atmosphere, will include a library and research archive, seminar rooms, a major conference facility, offices, student and visiting fellow accommodation, a research hub and state of the art media centre with recording studio.
