The Braselton Library project consisted of building the new 10,000 square foot library. It’s a single story wood framed structure. It includes separate adult and children’s reading rooms as well as auxiliary meeting space and a self enclosed retail area. Separate lounge and work room space provide a retreat for the library staff. The low country design of the library compliments Braselton’s architecture as well as provides a full wrap around porch for relaxed weekend reading. Building complexities include a dual metal roof system including metal shingles on the high slopes and standing seam metal on the low sloping porch. Stained and stamped concrete resembling wood planks were utilized on the porch as well as vinyl/aluminum composite rails to provide a long life / low maintenance alternative to typical porch design.
