School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

Donald Insall Associates was commissioned by Mace in September 2012 to advise on proposals for the north block of Senate House in Bloomsbury, London. The north block of Senate House of 1932-38 is listed at Grade II*. The building stands in the Bloomsbury Conservation Area. The north block of the Senate House was designed by Charles Holden in 1932 and built, along with the main Senate House and Library, from 1933. The Senate House was the headquarters of the University of London and the north block was the home of the Institute of Education and the School of Slavonic Studies, two of its constituent colleges. This is a significant building, which has a grace to its overall composition and has been described as a piece of 1930s New York in central London.
