Sandwich Public Library

Location: Sandwich, MA
Size: 17,700 SF

StudioMLA and David King Architects worked with the Sandwich Public Library to develop an ambitious program to re-imagine the library as a space that encourages community engagement and supports a broad variety of uses. The inclusive design process generated innovative ideas through collaboration with staff, board and patrons.

The project protects the library’s historic elements while reinforcing its dedication to reading, archival research and children’s learning. The conceptual design improved circulation and space maximization, and introduced new children’s and teen areas.
