West Regional Library
Location: Scott, Louisiana
Size: 17,500 sf
This state-of-the-art library in Scott, Louisiana, was designed by ACSW to be an inviting space for locals and implemented several design elements from the region. With the area’s long history in the agriculture industry, it is fitting to incorporate shapes into the exterior design that reflect those found in agricultural materials and tools.
Keeping youth in mind, the library is a space that embraces and encourages learning through colorful elements, designated learning spaces, and inspiring use of shape and light. Large, colorful windows bring in brightness and create an opportunity for those inside to connect with the natural landscape outdoors.
This library includes conference rooms, public meeting spaces, children’s areas, and spaces for technology. These will allow the library to grow with the needs of its community and serve it well into the future.
