The City of Carlsbad selected Cardwell Architects to design its new 64,000 square foot library, which features a 200-seat auditorium and a community art gallery, organized by a colonnaded entry courtyard. The two-story library features a main hall that focuses public services, gives clarity to circulation and organizes the collections. From this central space, a sequence of spaces transition from public gathering areas to smaller spaces for group and individual study.
