EAST RANCHO DOMINGUEZ LIBRARY

This new branch replaces a small facility in an old, broken down residence.  The library offers a high level of design on a busy, honky-tonk commercial street full of mini-malls and auto repair shops.

 

The interior is amply lit with natural light from high clerestory windows. Many sustainable features reduce energy (by over 40%!), conserve water by over 30%, recycle materials, and minimize the  burden on public  utilities (e.g. sewers, storm drains, power, etc.).  In addition to the library function, there is a community room that can independently accommodate neighborhood gatherings.
