The new 14,000 sf Library Branch is part of a series of profile projects intended for the revitalization for the Eden Park Community. The team engaged public, civic, and neighborhood interest groups in the planning process to gain broad understanding and respond effectively to a rich community history and need for a true community facility. The final design efficiently integrated library functional requirements within an open light filled pavilion to welcome community participation. A state-of-the-art modular flooring system was integrated to allow ultimate facility flexibility over time and facilitate under floor utility and HVAC distribution thereby preserving the open pavilion volume. Early planning envisioned the ability of this project to serve as a catalyst for integrating disparate public and private interests into a pedestrian based community center, generating renewed interest in development of adjacent property.
