Oak Forest Branch Library

2009

Houston, Texas

Renovation of modern brick and glass box 1960's library building includes adding two new brick and glass boxes to reorient the library space to the mature trees on the lot. Each reading area is individually massed and connected to a light filled entry piece that allows for two separate entries - one from the parking lot and one from the neighborhood.
