Videos: How Wilkinson Eyre's Weston Library was put together

Watch a timelapse and a fly-through of the revamp of Weston Library in Oxford

The library at Oxford University reopened last month after an £80 million revamp by Wilkinson Eyre.

The renovation project created research areas, storage for the library’s collections, and expanded public spaces including new exhibition galleries, a lecture theatre, a digital media centre and seminar rooms.

The architects removed the top floors of the building’s original central stack – which held 11-storeys of books – replacing them with a dedicated reading room and suite of research rooms.

The library’s three-storey underground stacks have been partially rebuilt and upgraded to modern archival standards.
