Hendersonville Main Branch Library addition      Hendersonville, North Carolina


Complete renovation and a 20,000 sf addition of the existing library on a very restricted downtown Hendersonville site.  By positioning the addition along the narrow north side of the existing building, we were able to create an axial sky lighted entrance and control spine extending from the downtown entrance through to the primary entrance form the new parking area.  Upper level spaces along the north side are administrative serving the entire County Library system.  The Auditorium space is oriented toward the rear parking Lobby.  The building was completed ahead of schedule and within initial budget requirements; named as an "Outstanding New or Improved Library Facility" by the North Carolina Public Library Directors Association in 1992.
