Project Description

Standing in the heart of the City of Liverpool, between the World Museum and The Walker Art Gallery as the centrepiece of a triumvirate of architectural magnificence, the Central Library has played host to millions of visitors, from venerable academics, to those first embarking on their love of literature (some of the latter becoming the former in time). Lost Art were therefore delighted to be invited to take part in the restoration and refitting of such an iconic element of the Merseyside skyline. For the most part, our work was focussed on the cast and wrought iron gates surrounding the building, although we did contribute to its fabric, with restored and reproduced balcony panels and skylight frames. Each visit to the area still brings us a glow of pride.
