As part of a district-wide library revitalization effort, Anacostia Neighborhood Library chosen to be rebuilt following LEED Silver standards and modernized. As with many modern libraries, the community needed space not only for book storage but for meetings, adult learning, conferences, socializing, and computing. A predominately low-income neighborhood with a high number of children, it was important to design a space that could easily be transformed as the demographic changed from a younger to a more adult population. Working closely with Spacesaver Corporation, our team was able to create a storage solution that met the needs of the community as well as the sustainability goals of the project.
