Glendale Branch Library Renovation

Master Plan – 10 year a la carte plan establishing phasing priorities and estimated costs to assist the Library with funding requests and budgeting.
Phase I – ADA interventions for building entry and interior circulation + related renovation of interior and exterior areas.
Phase II – The client requested a visually stimulating and engaging environment for the children’s room space. The proposed polychrome scheme references the intense color blocks utilized by Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica overlaid with typographical imagery that playfully slides behind the open back book stacks. This is enriched with Thomas Jefferson’s “I cannot live without books” quotation and a children’s book passage about an innocent and uplifting experience of an urban child.
