Work Architecture Company

This new library is designed to be a source of pride for the community. A perimeter of open rooms for adults, teens, children and staff wraps a core of stacks and is capped with a green roof. The facade is a literal “lif ting up” of the exterior walls to broadcast activities to the outside. The apex and most public corner is the main reading room, while a second “mini peak” creates the children’s room.
