West Seattle Library

Green Lake and West Seattle Libraries were rehabilitated to accommodate library service changes and improve safety and energy performance. The projects exemplify a careful balance of historic building elements with new infrastructure to open another century of use for a pair of Carnegie libraries.

Lively engagement results in extraordinary places.

SHKS Architects finds elegance in necessity, elevating the core principles of each unique site and building project to reflect our clients' aspirations.
