The Bridge Bar

For more than two centuries the North and South squares of Gray's Inn were separated by a range of buildings which include the Grade I listed Hall.

The connection between the squares was through an archway under a 'bridge', which had sustained heavy bomb damage during World War II, but although often modified, had survived until the 1970s.

This project replaces the that lost bridge with a first floor bar providing facilities for junior members of the Inn, equal access to the upper levels of the hall and a link from the basement kitchens to the function rooms in 10 South Square.

The design is in the Gothic style, but subtle, contributing to its surroundings rather than competing with them.
