Homer, Alaska, USA
The vision for Homer Public Library was clear – an architecturally striking, green structure that would not only become a sanctuary for the community but also push the landscape of the area forward in both design and function. Extreme temperatures, high wind loads and seasonal sunlight issues were important considerations for the design, engineering and construction of the project. The high-performance products helped create a light-filled community reading room and provide abundant natural light throughout without sacrificing thermal efficiency.
