Leadhills Miner's Library

Leadhills, Lanarkshire

Formed in 1741 Leadhills Miner’s Library is the oldest subscription library in Great Britain.

ICDP’s proposal for the extension and renovation of the existing library centred around the creation of a new building mirroring the materials and form of the original library whilst introducing contemporary features such as a wall to roof wrap around glazing strip, corner windows and high performance insulation.
