1864 – Linen Hall Library, Belfast

Architect: Lanyon, Lynn and Lanyon


Sited on Donegall Square facing the dominant City Hall, the Linen Hall Library is the cultural heart of the city of Belfast. It was originally built as a Linen Warehouse for Moore and Weinberg by Lanyon, Lynn and Lanyon in 1864.


It was later adapted by Young & Mackenzie in 1891 as a Library and remained fairly faithful to its interior design.
