Built in 1989, the Columbine Library, the busiest of branches in the Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) System was in need of renovation. With input from the community a vision for the library was created and the $4M overhaul began.
The renovation list included the creation of a separate area for children and adults, a space for “community,” a quiet area for all and a collection of not just books, but all media; this meant updating technology as well. One thing that no one wanted to see change is the library’s million dollar view of the foothills of Littleton. Now this modern library reflects the attributes of the Jefferson County community it serves and fulfills the vision JCPL had of delighting their patrons.
One aspect of the renovation was to improve the access to the library; this involved the relocation of the main entrance to the east side. The Selux Trigo, with its simple geometric form, frames this new entrance. Trigo has everything a designer is looking for — superior photometric performance along with architectural appeal for a variety of lighting applications such as pedestrian walkways, campuses, and other urban settings.
