Somers Public Library
Client: Town of Somers
Completion Date: 2009
The existing 10,000 sq. ft. library building was built in 1988 and had become deficient in many ways. Doubling the size of the library, our design wrapped part of the existing structure, providing a new entry system, a new multi-purpose room and a new courtyard in a seamless and harmonious design. The other benefits of the project entailed resolution of HVAC, energy loss and lighting problems along with a complete reorganization and definition of separate program areas within the library, such as a new juvenile and pre-school area, a teen space, new small quiet-study rooms, staffwork rooms and storage areas. Careful planning of the library interior has resulted in a highly functional and modern library.
