Awards

LEED® Gold
Library Building Award of Merit, 2010

Project Description

This 17,500 square foot library is located at Burnaby’s Edmonds area. The design of the facility emphasizes openness and accessibility. The main library space is a large room with a high ceiling. Exterior glazing adds to the sense of transparency and connectivity between library patrons and pedestrians outside.

The high ceiling contributes to daylighting by allowing high-level light from the clerestory windows to diffuse across the room. The added height helps with the ventilation of the space — automated, high-level windows open to allow hot air to escape, exploiting natural convective forces.
