Somerset House

Architect:  Feilden and Mawson Architects

Client: Somerset House Trustees

Project completion: 2009


The proposals for improving public access to the historic Somerset House complex has been underway for some years. The Courtyard and ramps into the South Wing were the first element to be completed.  As a logical extension of these changes, access from the Courtyard through the South Wing to the Embankment Terrace needed to be considered. 


David Bonnett Associates (DBA) was instructed to investigate the feasibility of providing step-free access, with minimum impact on the Embankment elevation of the building.   More recently DBA was instructed by King’s College London regarding proposals for the South Wing as a new Legal Faculty. This included the development of ideas for improved access for both public and students to the building itself and from the courtyard and the Kings College Quad.
