Overview

The addition / renovation nearly doubled the size of the four-story library, while incorporating state-of-the-art communication, technology and security systems. All of the study carrels, work tables, reading tables and lounge seating areas are WiFi compatible and provide electrical outlets for laptops and other electronics. High-tech audio and video presentation equipment are in the meeting rooms and administrative areas.

Features

To meet the owner’s sustainability goal, a key design goal was to provide energy-efficient space that was also cost-effective. The existing lighting system was replaced with modern, energy-efficient systems and fixtures. Shading, window size and placement contributed to a well-lit building with low solar heat gain. Moreover, large spans of insulated glass provide the interiors with natural light.
