PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Constructed in 2003, the 95th Street Library is a bold, contemporary library facility that had shown much wear and tear in a short amount of time. Williams Architects assisted the Library with multiple renovation projects at this location designed to replace damaged finishes with new finishes more appropriate to heavy wear and use. The renovation work was preceded by an in-depth programming and planning phase with the NPL team in order to identify the facility’s needs and goals for project improvements. NPL staff praised Williams Architects at the conclusion of this project, thanking Williams Architects for taking the time to listen to their needs rather than “imposing materials and colors on the Library.”

Work included extensive use of new rubber flooring. Additionally the library’s previous cafe area was renovated into a new Wireless Internet Cafe, with vending, cafe seating, and a work counter with abundant power outlets for laptops. Other renovation projects completed included renovated staff offices and meeting/study rooms and a renovated street-level monument sign.
