Gayton Branch Library


BCWH and Tappé Associates, of Boston, designed the interior renovations to the Gayton Library in Henrico County. The work includes the complete interior renovation of the existing 12,672 SF branch library. The primary goals for the project were to update and refresh the original library design, and to create a more welcoming and comfortable neighborhood library. The design promoted more dedicated patron spaces within the library and more efficient staff work space. By taking advantage of the existing volume within the building, the once dark and compressed environment was completely transformed into an open and inviting interior.

Services included library planning and programming, facilitating community meetings, design and construction documents, construction administration, and interior furnishings design and procurement.
