After completing a Master Plan for the library, product architects completed the second level - adult collection as part of the first phase in winter of 2014. Product architects worked closely with the construction manager to ensure the existing details we reproduced closely to make the transition from old to new seamless. New flooring, furniture and lighting completed the second level. While the year 2016 rang in the grand opening of the new first level Youth department funky flooring and lights are offset with subtle maple furnishings.
Product Architecture + Design completed the renovation of the lobby & meeting rooms at GEPL in summer of 2018, the 4th project of a five year relationship with the library. This project consisted of flipping the circulation workroom and meeting rooms, which allowed for the addition of an exterior book-drop with access to the to workroom. The lobby was expanded, providing clearer way-finding for patrons and allowing the addition of a café. Materials were chosen to blend the designs of the previous projects by bringing the subdued color palette of level 2 downstairs and the warm wood & bright teal from the youth department.
