Lake Architectural had the wonderful opportunity to design and oversee construction on the new Marcellus Free Library. This project, totaling $2,800,000 in construction costs, allowed the team at Lake to apply their exceptional design skills alongside their LEED techniques.
The recently completed Marcellus Free Library is an innovative space of 11,800 square feet designed to accommodate various users and diverse programs. Double the size of the existing library, the building is located along Nine Mile Creak on the Upper Crown Mills site in the Village of Marcellus. The project’s concept was to link the old and new. Referencing the site’s past, the form of the library is reminiscent of a foundry, but inside is a comfortable and inspiring space, with unique spatial considerations. The library is the FIRST CERTIFIED LEED SILVER BUILDING IN ONONDAGA COUNTY, demonstrating both its social and ecological investment in the community.
