Homer Public Library

Homer, Alaska

The people of Homer desired a larger modern library facility to meet the needs of their vibrant, intellectual community. We worked closely with the City of Homer and the non-profit Friends of the Library group to develop a 17,000 SF library that became the first LEED-Silver Certified civic building in the State of Alaska. Inside the Homer Public Library you'll find book collections, study areas, children's spaces, administrative space, and conference rooms centered around a community reading room. The overall design incorporates art pieces which were designed by local artists using salvaged local products, such as driftwood. The library site is designed to flow as park/green space with an amphitheater and bike trails. The library was completed within budget and ahead of schedule.
