This project involved a complete restoration of an existing historic building and a significant 8,000 sq ft addition.

The Kellogg Hubbard Library, an Italianate-style granite building built in 1894, is often described as the “Jewel” of Montpelier, VT.

The building needed an introduction of all new systems and the addition increased overall shelf and administrative space and added a separate wing for the new children’s library. The redesigned entry relocated the lantern to modestly complement the existing bay window of the library’s original main fa├žade and results in an inviting view of the two floor levels.
