For over 75 years Heywood Hill has created private libraries of endless variety all over the world, in homes, boardrooms, yachts and indeed anywhere a shelf or two can be put up
At Heywood Hill Private Libraries we believe books are an accurate reflection of an individual’s character, interests and identity. Every project we undertake is unique and our private library building experts work hard to create an original collection of books that echoes our client’s reading tastes and interests, wherever they are in the world.
Our reputation for exceptional service, sourcing high-quality books and installing beautiful libraries can be relied upon. Our experienced booksellers and library consultants can help you refresh your existing library or create an entirely new collection. When necessary we work closely with interior designers and architects to ensure that your library not only reads well but also looks stunning. Whatever your reading tastes or interests, we will produce a bespoke, original collection carefully designed to complement your home or office.
"‘A library from Heywood Hill is the bibliophile’s equivalent of ordering a bespoke suit. Having experienced it for myself I could not imagine doing it another way.’"
Matthew De Morgan
Initial Briefing: We hold a preliminary meeting to discuss the project and your specific book and design requirements. We will then provide a full brief of the project and a comprehensive costing.
The Collection: Our team of in-house experts will choose, acquire and collate your book collection. Every book will have justified its place in your library on the quality, relevance or beauty of its contents. We can also advise on any shelf design requirements.
Installation: Your library will be delivered and installed by our team of experts. We understand the importance of providing not only an engaging library but also a beautifully presented room or collection.
Follow Up: Our team will remain in contact to ensure the ongoing success of your library. Should you wish we can advise on seasonal updates or new publications that will compliment your collection.
