Central Library and Jubilee Street Masterplan

Bennetts Associates

Shortlisted for the Stirling Prize and awarded Prime Minister's Public Building 2005, the Jubilee Library has also been a great success with the people of Brighton. Fronting onto the square at the heart of the masterplan, the building makes a welcoming expression of civic purpose and uses materials and roofscape inspired by the locality. The highly sustainable interior contains dramatic spaces infused with natural light. The project was built through PFI to a tight budget.
