Challenge/Goal: SRBL had to design the library addition to blend with the original construction. The later renovation of the Lobby and Restrooms, funded by an American with Disabilities (ADA) grant, presented the same challenge- maintain the appearance of the craftsman style in the building.
Solution: Heavy timber beams and Wisconsin Fieldstone match the existing library. The later renovation sought to improve the entrance and lobby as well as provide universal access for the patrons. Tile work has literary references and fine wood detailing create a “branded” entrance.
