South County Regional Library

The two-story regional library was built in 1998 and is the county’s largest regional library, circulating over 1.2 million items per year and welcoming over 450,000 visitors annually.

Design for this 34,000 SF renovation included an interior upfit to respond to community needs for more meeting spaces and collaborative areas while maintaining the large collection. The community valued the treehouse feel of the library and wanted to preserve the connections to the natural environment, while also celebrating their connections to global culture, performing arts, children and families, and lifelong learners.
