Architecture: Libraries

Dewberry offers national expertise to support both public and academic libraries. Our services range from architecture and interior design to all aspects of site and building engineering. Our portfolio includes many award-winning libraries throughout the country, assisting clients with modernization and expansion projects as well as new facilities. We've also designed retrofit projects involving adaptive reuse of former office and retail spaces and restored and adapted beautiful historic properties to serve as community libraries.

Comprehensive Services

Our services include community outreach; sustainability planning; and incorporation of the latest advances in technology, security, and library operations. We carefully address building context, respecting and celebrating each site and opportunity. Our library projects have become downtown landmarks, campus gateways, and community destinations.
