CLIENT Washington County
LOCATION Portland, Oregon
Located on Cornell, this is a 10,208 s.f. library addition. The first floor houses the children’s section and the second floor provides meeting / work rooms and offices. The existing resale area has been relocated within the building in its own space. Provided is a new storage area and new facade.
The concept of the design is to create a visually stimulating and functional new library while establishing an image for the proposed town center. This renovation to the library (with classic overtones and a copper roof) has been welcomed by the community as an excellent improvement.
