The Summerland Branch Library will be a community gathering place and civic hub in downtown Summerland. It was designed in an intensive and interactive community consultation process. The project stands as a pavilion in the city and features a dramatic undulating roof to form a street presence, respond to public program areas and create a simple sustainable form. Extensive glazing brings in northern light and allows transparency to enhance interior and exterior connections.
