Mars Public Library
The desire for this client was to create a library as part of a greater campus that included the adjacent township building, sports fields, and hiking trails. There was a natural slope to the land that we followed to nestle the building into the bank. The interior layout was conceived to take maximum advantage of the natural light, with the circulation desk, and staff areas having full visibility to the outdoors.
In keeping with the natural beauty of the landscape we recommended a heavy timber structure, with gambrel roof, brick walls, and barn-style detailing all of which have a contemporary treatment. The end result is a facility that has literally become “windows to the world.”
