What library in the Northwest would be complete without its' own café? The city of Eugene held a design competition for a vendor for the new library's café. Once selected, together with the Owners, the City of Eugene and the Library's Design Team, we worked to create a small oasis for the reading public. The primary design goal was to create a welcoming façade to attract customers as they enter the library. We borrowed the "curve" from the overall library design to highlight "a little jewel in the entry garden". The café design was required to maintain the same high standards as the library in its selection of materials, millwork details and attention to light levels.
