Rick Mather Architects is delighted to have been selected by the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn to draw up a Masterplan for its historic eleven acre site. RMA was appointed to the high-profile commission following an invited selection process. The strategic Masterplan is a vital first step to providing the Inn with much-needed new facilities including barrister training spaces and new library accommodation. The commission includes outline proposals, historic research and a comprehensive review of both the rich & varied building stock and of the unique historic squares & gardens.
One of four Inns of Court the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn traces its origins to the 13th Century and has occupied the present Holborn site since 1422. The central London site is bounded by Chancery Lane, High Holborn, Lincoln’s Inn Fields and the Royal Courts of Justice and features significant buildings by Inigo Jones, Robert Taylor, Philip Hardwick and George Gilbert Scott.
‘’RMA presented a well thought out, considered approach to the Lincoln's Inn masterplan. Their fresh, innovative ideas, combined with a thorough understanding of the sensitivities of a heritage site, offer us the opportunity to address current practical issues within a framework for our development that has revealed exciting opportunities for future development’’.
Mary Kerr, Under Treasurer
