Heights Libraries – University Heights Library Addition and Renovation

CBLH Design recently designed the renovation and addition to the 1950’s style building in University Heights.

The Library had purchased the three adjacent houses to the south of the Library building to allow for the ability to expand the library and add additional parking.

The program for this project included a new entrance off the parking lot, new meeting rooms, additional collection and reading spaces, a new children’s area with Storytime room, new teen area, and off-the-floor staff work space.

The Children’s Area in the Lower Level is designed using a map theme with a large compass rose suspended in the open ceiling.  Adjacent to the Children’s Area is a dedicated Teen Room.
