South County Regional Library

Charlotte, NC

Estimated Completion: December 2020

About the Project

The existing library is a 32,693 square feet, two-story, brick masonry building. The interiors will be fully renovated, and some additional square footage will be created by enclosing a portion of the existing patios on the first floor (700sf), and infilling the second-floor structure above the entry vestibule (360sf). The interior finishes will be replaced, and library spaces redesigned to address core services and community needs. Sprinklers are being added to the building. The site circulation will be revised to add a vehicular book return at the exterior of the building. A new entry plaza, walk-up book return, children’s garden, and early voting north entrance will be developed as part of the sitework.

Edifice constructed the original South County Regional Library in 1998.
