PSA Dewberry - Architects
As a catalyst for a series of redevelopment projects in downtown Glenview, SDA worked in close collaboration with PSA Dewberry architects to prepare the landscape and streetscape plans on this $26 million urban infill project. Taking cues from local landmarks and the architectural details of the building, SDA created unique plazas and streetscape presentations that serve as the main entry to the library. The landscape not only enhances the new building but also serves to provide safe outdoor spaces for patrons to enjoy. SDA designed the streetscape to seamlessly blend with the library landscape, incorporating an outdoor reading room, permeable pavers and stylized site furnishings to match both materials on the building and in the adjacent park. In addition to sustainable solutions at ground level, SDA also prepared the plans for a green roof that will serve as an outdoor seating and entertainment space.
