More than skin deep.
An intricately- engineered exterior renews a 1910 library.
A novel approach.
Founded in 1910, Manhattan Beach Library is one of the oldest continuous libraries in the Los Angeles Public Library system. As Executive Architect, we partnered with Design Architect Johnson Favaro to build a structure that meets the evolving needs of its surrounding community—and achieved LEED Gold certification in the process.
