Palm Beach County | Central Library & Administrative Offices

About This Project

The expansion and remodeling to the Central Library in Palm Beach County includes the addition of a 10,000 square feet administration building and the remodeling of 40,000 square feet of existing public service space. Linking these two main functional areas is a new public entry and lobby with a 200 seat meeting room.


The complex is organized around a covered courtyard reinforced with a promenade of palm trees beginning at the site access and terminating at the entry. Axial organization is expressed by anchors located at the administration lobby and the children circulation desk with main spaces addressing this orientation.
