After 20 years of existence, the Kirkland Municipal Library was is need of renovation and modernizing. The work included installing a new elevator in the existing entrance to allow for barrier-free access to the basement level, completely renovating the mechanical systems and new lighting in the reading rooms.
Taking the existing building into consideration, DMA proposed a concept that included the complete renovation of the entrance not only to signal the renewal of the Library and but to open the library towards its community. Without affecting the library's on-going activities, this concept was implemented by increasing the northern natural light.
