The North Vancouver City Library is a landmark building servicing a growing community. The library and surrounding plaza generates urban vitality and provides a community meeting place that compliments the surrounding business district.
The distribution of program space within the library is used to create superb study spaces overlooking either the Civic Plaza or the Courtyard with unheralded mountain views.
The Central Lonsdale District Energy Plant located beneath the plaza provides energy to the library. A large array of solar panels following the south slope of the roof monitor, provide heat for domestic hot water to the District.
