North Regional Library
Provide a new public library in an area traditionally underserved yet currently growing in population. Design the site and building to appeal to a small-town aesthetic while providing for new and modern public spaces and provisions for future building growth.
Using Best Practices and guided by library design consultant, Denelle C. Wrightson A.I.A., NCARB, LEED AP of Dewberry, the building is designed as a simple brick structure with feature areas of cement plaster including a classically designed front portico. We borrowed exterior forms from significant public buildings of the immediate area and added the unique touches of a kaleidoscope tower room for children and a genealogy research area for adults.
