The library’s design is a reflection of the client’s goal to reflect the material and color qualities of the local surrounding areas. Durable and easily maintainable exterior finishes of plaster and metal siding were incorporated to celebrate the areas agricultural-industrial buildings. The interior design finishes celebrate the various interior program spaces to provide identify and comfort. Additionally, the design's form was derived from maximizing sustainable design concepts through natural daylighting and adjacent local views. The clear-story and skylight daylighting provides a library space that is completely day lit which improves the quality of the space while reducing operating costs.
