Studio Weave has extended the Lea Bridge Library in London, United Kingdom.

This project is an extension to the Grade-II listed Lea Bridge Library in East London, adding a cafe and adaptable community space with an improved connection to the library’s gardens.

The aim of the Lea Bridge Library extension was to deliver a revived civic heart for the Borough of Waltham Forest.

The project addresses the changing role of a library in modern civic infrastructure, conceiving a new wing that offers a place to work, learn, socialise, and gather.

This project has been shortlisted in the civic project category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
