1010 Sherbrooke West Lobby

Warm, Inviting Look of Wood Draws Students to University Library

The new Charles Library at Temple University serves as a central point of intersection between students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community. “An early goal of the library design was for it to be an organizing element and a way to pull students to the library from multiple parts of the campus,” says Chad Carpenter, project manager, Snohetta. “The goal was also for the physical space of the library to be a collector and a warm, comforting place that everybody would understand as the center of campus.” Between the exterior and interior ceiling and wall applications, over 50,000 sq. ft. of western red cedar panels were installed.
