The Bartlett is moving

Bartlett Space

Last week saw The Bartlett School of Planning and The Bartlett Library move into new premises in Central House, leaving Wates House to be prepared for its Hawkins\Brown-designed retrofit. 

The library closed for the move on 25 July and will be rehoused on the Ground Floor of Central House, in brand-new premises designed by Hawkins\Brown. This new space will offer an increased number of individual and group study spaces, self-service machines and a display and exhibition space.

The library will reopen on 4 August, and all loans due back in that week will be due on 6 August.  

The Bartlett School of Planning moved into newly refitted offices on the 5th and 6th floors of Central House over the weekend of 26/27 July. Staff and students will have access to a new group learning space and computer clusters, as well as refurbished academic and administrative facilities. 

Central House, a short walk from Wates House, will be home to the library and the School of Planning for the next two years as building work on the refurbishment is completed. 

The Bartlett School of Architecture is preparing to move into its new home at 140 Hampstead Road. Staff offices will be relocated on the weekend of 2/3 August, and workshops will be reopened on 1 September. 

140 Hampstead Road is ten minutes walk from UCL and will offer floor space equivalent to Wates House, along with newly refurbished studios with 5m high ceilings and a new facility for the school’s digital and analogue workshops.
