This 10,500-square-foot library, which occupies the bottom two floors of a residential highrise development in Battery Park City, was commissioned to meet the needs of a new and rapidly growing community. As a new branch without an ingrained pattern of community use, it was critical for the design to be flexible and establish a presence that would attract visitors. Open, bright spaces create a welcoming environment for the public, while the user-friendly layout is easy to navigate. The folded planes of the ceiling guide the visitor’s eye through the library, to physically and visually unify the entire space. The most eco-friendly of the New York Public Library branches, the project utilizes numerous sustainable design strategies and is LEED Gold certified.
