City of Cupertino Library Expansion

The Cupertino Library expansion involved the demolition of the existing single-story 1,175 square foot Children’s Book Area and replacing it with a new two-story 5,626 square foot addition that connects to the existing Library structure. A multipurpose Program Room houses a presentation space with a minimum of 130 seats as well as additional spillover seating. Space flexibility is achieved with rooms that can be divided and used for multiple programs simultaneously. Also included are a kitchenette, gender-neutral restrooms on each floor, as well as general storage rooms. The architecture of this addition is punctuated by the glass storefront façade on both the outside and courtyard side elevations, creating a transparent jewel box. This transparency also allows for a visual link from within the courtyard to the Memorial Grove outside and reinforcing the idea of connection between building and place.
