About the Project

New state-of-the-art library with expansion capabilities. Situated on a 22-acre rural parcel, the library provides quiet spaces as well as places for collaborative work, and for community gatherings both inside and outside the building.

Dunbar has been a partner in developing designs that are supportive of the client's needs as well as the artful aesthetic we believe is what our clients deserve. They have responded to the demands of some complicated designs and sometimes unreasonable schedules in ways not matched by their competitors.
