Springville City Public Library


Springville City Public Library

Springville City was in need of a new home for the community’s library facilities, and was commitment to implementing a retail library model, a central avenue, and main circulation spine. Springville is known as the ‘art city’ and this created an opportunity for art display to be integrated throughout the building.

A strong visual connection was created from the interior to the adjacent Hobble Creek through large windows overlooking a pedestrian green space adjacent to the creek. High performance glazing with exterior sunshades were paired with radiant heating and a displacement cooling system to produce excellent energy and efficiency.
