The new Centennial Hills Library is located on a 7-acre site located in
the growing Northwest Las Vegas area. Designed to achieve LEED Gold
certification the library improves the well-being and health of the
occupant and reduces negative environment impacts.
The Library encompasses 30,000 square feet with an additional 15,000
square feet for a central operations center, which will become future
expansion for the Library.
The project concept was to create a pavilion open to the city park to
the north. The Library design shatters Library preconceptions by
flooding the Library with indirect day lighting; eliminating any
artificial general lighting needs. The facility includes a computer lab,
a meeting room with a 62-seat capacity, a used bookstore and café area
along with free Wi-Fi and wireless printing
