Connecticut Excellence in Public Library Architecture Honorable Mention

The Fairfield Library renovation and expansion project dramatically augmented the town’s ability to service its extraordinarily active constituency and Towers|Golde’s site design created a more dignified and welcoming setting.

 

The site design honors the original, historic building’s facade while clarifying the new arrival options.ᅠ The pre-existing landscaping of the Post Road setting was renewed and the historic trees were protected.ᅠNew site interventions included a new entry plaza, an accessible pedestrian approach from the Post Road, enhanced parking with a new accessible side entry. The main entry plaza features specimen  plantings as well as seating and ceremonial space.
