Award of Merit: Commercial Exterior

Mitchell Park Library

 Palo Alto, California

The Mitchell Park Library is 56,332 square feet of new construction on approximately 3.4 acres in a community park in Palo Alto, California. The approximately 40,000-square foot library is the newest and largest of six libraries in the Palo Alto City Library system. Recognizing the potential for a more sustainable service model, the city of Palo Alto’s Library and Community Services departments developed an innovative and robust “omni-channel” vision of enhanced service in a shared destination for civic, cultural, educational, social, and recreational experiences. To support this new vision, the city sought to replace its library and community center buildings with a new joint-use facility. Appropriateness, quality, and durability of materials were key. This project was designed to serve the community for generations.
