Located on Prospect Avenue, a busy North-South corridor in Milwaukee, this project called for a small branch library for the Milwaukee Public Library system. The design responds to the city park across the street by pulling the park green into the site. An independently operated coffee shop holds the street edge, while the main entrance to the library and community room is set back. The second floor is protected from direct sunlight by a copper rain screen. The libraryâ€™s digital collection and childrenâ€™s area are located at street level while the stacks and reading lounges are elevated and day lit by skylights.
