The Grade B-listed Lynn Building is a high profile structure on the main site at Queen's University and one of the best examples of Ruskinian Gothic architecture in Belfast.

Refurbishment of the brick and polychrome stone exterior of the high-profile grade B listed Old Library has been executed with the utmost care, preserving the historic fabric of the building and demonstrating exemplary judgement, skill and craftsmanship by the design and construction teams.

At first floor level, the scheme has successfully and sensitively integrated a range of high quality reading areas and seminar rooms into one of Ireland's richest High Victorian interiors, maintaining its calm, imposing and almost ecclesiastical character.
