East Boston Branch Library
Boston, MA

Overlooking the Bremen Street Park, the new East Boston Branch of the Boston Public Library serves the entire East Boston community, one of Boston’s fastest-growing and most diverse neighborhoods. The project includes an open-plan community reading room with views of the park and the Boston skyline, with dedicated areas for adults, children & teens, in addition to a quiet reading room, a conference room and community space for multipurpose programs. A Reading Porch runs the length of the building along the park, providing outdoor space for reading, congregating, and using the wireless internet network. Plan flexibility and a focus on early literacy programming define this compact, technologically advanced branch library. The building is LEED Gold Certified. (15,000 s.f.)
