Quartz Hill Public Library
PROJECT LEADER

COMPLETION DATE
October 24, 2016
CLIENT
SVA Architects, Inc.
PROJECT TYPE
Civic

This 12,514 square foot state-of-the-art library features a campus-like environment, with central public gathering spaces and outdoor learning courtyards. In addition, the facility includes adult, teen, and children’s reading areas, an early childhood/family area, a programming space, a homework center, two group study rooms that feature unique lighting fixtures to help delineate the different spaces. The project also includes a 100-seat community meeting room with an audio/visual system, express-service checkout machines at the lobby, information services pods, public access computers, Wi-Fi, staff areas, and public restrooms.

tk1sc provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and technology engineering services with lighting design by our boutique lighting design team, Studio K1. With many large windows visible from the entrance, we considered the view of the interior from the exterior when creating the design. We accomplished the lighting design all while maintaining the footcandle requirements of the County of Los Angeles Public Library system and staying within a tight budget. Additionally, with Quartz Hill being a remote location, we needed to comply with CalGreen for a Lighting Zone 2 area, helping this project attain a LEED Gold Certification. Architecture by SVA Architects, with construction by Swinerton Builders and Griffin Structures.
