Location: Pleasant Valley, NY
This project provided an opportunity to assist a pillar of the Pleasant Valley cultural community with its long overdue expansion and re invention. TA began with a comprehensive programming process and inventory of needs. The resulting design includes an addition with community meeting rooms, a new plaza to accommodate community events and use by patrons, and extensive interior improvements within the existing library. The architectural design of the addition plays new against old, and uses modern elements such as metal panels and extensive glazing to signal the new phase in the life of this important institution.
