The historic Mamaroneck Library, originally completed in 1927, has been expanded by 13,000 sq ft and restored 21,000 sq ft of original structures. Atelier Ten led the team effort to reduce overall energy and water consumption by integrating environmental measures into all aspects of the project.
Atelier Ten guided the design of the library towards achieving its goal of earning a LEED Gold rating. The expansion incorporates energy-efficient building systems for both the renovation and the expansion. A green roof, use of sustainable materials, and abundant natural light further enable the library to reduce its environmental footprint while providing much-needed community space in Mamaroneck. Furthermore, the library reduces potable water use by over 42% with its low-flow fixtures and use of native, no-irrigation landscape.
