Ashley Building, The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple

Middle Temple, London

The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple is one of the four Inns of Court entitled to call their members to the Bar as barristers in a court of law. Although there have been lawyers in Middle Temple since the 1300s, the existing Ashley Building dates back to the 1950s when it was designed by Edward Maufe to replace the Library building destroyed in the days of the London Blitz.

This project comprised the refurbishment across the basement-mezzanine, lower-basement and ground floor levels of the existing Ashley Building. Extensive structural alterations created a new common room area including a new feature staircase, café, meeting hub and WCs. Externally, the rear perron staircase were remodelled and extended in size, and windows were enlarged, along with careful stone restoration.
