Ballard Library and Neighborhood Service Center 2005
Peter Bohlin
Seattle, Washington
Local Residents pushed an aggressive environmental agenda and participated in selecting BCJ for this neighborhood center. In appearance, the library is at once Modern and respectful of the Ballard community’s maritime tradition. A dramatically sweeping roof supported by laminated wood beams extends beyond the exterior walls, defining the building. Both inside and out, white steel columns, tapered at each end, resemble ships’ masts.
