The purpose of this development was to transform a 14,430 square foot space into a public library. As well as to obtain high efficiency and sustainable measures desired by the environment.
Open space is key to my design, extra openings allow additional natural light penetration, which could be extremely energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Seventy five percent of the interior finishing and furnishings are made from recycled material. Peerless lighting was chosen as the main luminaire for this library. Also, LED technology was introduced in several designs, such as office task lights, wall scones, coffee bar pendant lights and exterior pathway lights.
