Sixteen Acres Library

Springfield, Massachusetts

The Sixteen Acres Library is the busiest branch library in Springfield, Massachusetts. A new addition located in front of the original 1960’s building creates a new entrance, children’s department and meeting rooms.

A tree motif was developed for the interior for the Children’s Room. An interior structural column was turned into a tree as a focus for a reading area. The leaf also becomes a motif on signage and on the Children’s Desk
