Forest Park, GA


16,000 SF

Sensitively designed to preserve a cluster of mature hardwood trees, this new library in suburban Forest Park maintains a close connection with its site. The glass west wall encircles the trees, whose leaves and branches diffuse the natural light entering the building. With the circulation desk at its center and the general collection and children’s library on either side, the facility is simple to navigate. Users can come and go with ease, but the views and the sunlit interiors will entice many to sit and enjoy a book.
