Cumberland Public Library

1599 Tenth Line Road, Ottawa, ON

  • When this modest library attached to a high school needed renovations, the City of Ottawa asked LWG to transform the tight and dated space into a larger open environment, a place that would allow for both formal and informal community events. By reclaiming underutilized space and reconfiguring the book stacks, we were able to add an expanded children's area and community meeting rooms, which freed up space for lounge areas, computer access areas and a "Youth Zone" for students to do homework and research.
