East Boston Public Library

Light reveals a dynamic form — sparking visual interest that creates a transcendent architectural experience.

The newest branch of the Boston Public Library overlooks Bremen Street Park and serves as a place for the entire community to come together. The library includes an open-plan community reading room with park and Boston skyline views. HLB Lighting Design provided lighting services for interior and exterior areas dedicated to a quiet reading room, a conference room, public space and community space for multipurpose programs. The dynamic curved roof defines this compact yet visually stunning library.
