Scotts Valley Library

Scotts Valley, CA

Inside the Library

Project Description

Strategic Construction Management, Inc. in collaboration with the City of Scotts, selected Group 4 Architects. Who then transformed an existing roller skating rink into a dynamic, light-filled library for Scotts Valley. On a limited budget and quick schedule, Strategic Construction Management, Inc. and the architect, Group 4 worked with staff and the opportunities inherent in the existing building to create a design with minimal columns and an open, flowing floor plan that was within an established budget and required schedule for a funding deadline.

Working within the existing shell, Group 4 organized the library around a new suspended polycarbonate lantern that brings in daylight and creates programmatic divisions while maintaining the generous interior volume. The teen platform re-creates booths from the original roller rink, and supports gaming and collaborative learning. The salvaged disco ball will be available for special night time programs.

The library's grand re-opening was held in June 2011.
