hMa hanrahan Meyers architects are pleased to announce that the firm has been hired by the NYC Department of Design and Construction to design a new library in Staten Island.
hMa developed the concept for the project by studying the program, and also by reviewing the area where the building will be sited.
The project will include a central sitting area where different groups from the community can mingle. There will be separate zones of book storage for adults, teens, and a children's reading area.
The building is planned to have a skin with variable permeability to light. Access to natural light is part of what will determine areas of program within the building.
