Project Description

Great Neck Library – Parkville Branch
Great Neck, NY  |  2024

“Using the “Living Edge” and a focus for user-centered activity”


Planning, architectural, and interior design services to introduce new services and library environments in an actively used branch library that shares the site of the local public school. Service areas were reorganized to relocate and expand Children’s services, create a new public meeting space, and create a lively “Living Edge” with window seats and small booth seating.  New materials reinvigorate the entire space. A spectrum of new activity spaces, from quiet to active, open to closed, now provide patrons with a wide choice of environments, and expand the library’s ability to serve its dedicated users of all ages.
