Benning Library: Davis Brody Bond Aedas

The new Benning Library, designed by the famous American architecture studio Davis Brody Bond Aedas, is located in Washington D.C., USA. The two floors of the facility are connected by a public staircase inside the building, creating a space which encourages pedestrian circulation through the library in order to connect one street elevation to another. The Benning Library utilises a warm colour palette of earth tones and a copper panel facade to complement its residential setting. The completed facility includes community spaces on the lower level including a 100-person multi-purpose room, two 12-person conference rooms and a public gathering and exhibition space. All rooms are covered with warm-toned vinyl flooring. The upper level of the library houses the library's collection.
