Pewaukee Public Library
The Pewaukee Public Library faced a serious space shortage as it was squeezed into a 3,000 square foot old church building in the historic Village of Pewaukee. A space planning projection indicated to house the libraries desired collection of 110,000 volumes, nearly 30,000 square foot would be required. Efficiencies in the design process brought the overall library size to 27,000 square foot in a two-story facility which built into a sloping site. Designed to be sympathetic to the residential neighborhood surrounding it, the new library was delivered on time and on budget in 2004, and recognized as “Wisconsin Main Street Communities” project of the year in 2005.
