NYPL Chatham Square Branch Library


New York, NY | 2003 | 10,000 sf

This historic Andrew Carnegie Library, originally designed by McKim, Mead and White in 1903, underwent a major renovation. The design of this sensitive renovation included the integration of an entirely new HVAC system, providing air-conditioning for the first time. An elevator and many safety features were incorporated into the structure in compliance with ADA requirements. The facility was updated while maintaining the historic nature of the building. Kevin Hom Architect were commended by the NYC Fine Arts Commission for their restraint in the design of this landmark building.
