The original, Mithun-designed Fairwood Library in Renton, Washington was configured as three side-by-side gable forms. This expansion designed by Schacht Aslani Architects (which joined Mithun in 2019) inserts a long-span, flat-roofed pavilion between the original volumes, creating a central space that organizes the library’s activities. The design connects patrons with views of the surrounding woodland, increases access to the library’s broadening array of resources, and creates a community living room. It’s a story of renewal and connection that was just meant to be. 📷: Tim Bies

Newcastle Library is an iconic landmark at the center of Newcastle’s evolving civic village. Its open and transparent façade welcomes the community in, while flexible reading and gathering spaces offer patrons a comfortable destination to relax, interact and gain knowledge. The grand, light-filled Reading Room incorporates a custom frit pattern inspired by the brain’s electrical activity. Early design studies reveal how the alpha rhythm—the most common brainwave activity during a state of learning, meditation or analyzing information—is abstracted on the building façade, reflecting the energy of the library on the community. 📷: Benjamin Benschneider
