This project involved the addition to and renovation of an existing community center. The work included an expanded, renovated library, a 60 seat multipurpose room with separate after hours access and a new entrance and internal street linking all of the facilities of the existing community center into a multi-purpose integrated facility.

The design accommodates technological resources to current standards with flexibility for future growth and change. The design includes: a central reading area with fireplace, bay windows with reading seats, group and personal study spaces, multi-media listening and viewing areas, a dedicated teen area, children’s reading and study areas and a children’s program room.
