Lakewood Public Library - Addition and Renovation

Lakewood Public Library is an Andrew Carnegie 1908 building that has been added onto three times. The current project involved a 45,000 square foot addition and total renovation and infrastructure replacement of the existing 50,000 square foot structure.

Robert A.M. Stern Architects was selected to design the project and CBLH Design teamed with Stern to produce the contract documents, have total responsibility of the structural, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering consultants and to handle contract administration services.

The design involves restoration of the existing structure’s facade and is sympathetic to the existing classical architectural style while giving the addition and renovation a fresh architectural statement as the Library moves into its next century of service. The project is designed using LEED certifiable principles and materials respecting the Library’s Board of Director’s desire to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
