The Bridge Bar
For more than 2 centuries the north and south squares of Grays Inn were separated by a range of buildings which include the Grade I listed Hall. The connection between the squares was via an archway under a “bridge”, which although often modified survived the heavy bomb damage inflicted on the Inn.
This project replaces the 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 gently gothic, contributing to its surroundings rather than competing with them.
