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.

  • Trigo has a simple geometric form that allows it to adapt to either modern or traditional architectural settings. Trigo’s understated sophistication is small and light at an economical price point. Trigo has everything a designer is looking for - superior photometric performance along with architectural appeal for various lighting applications such as pedestrian walkways, campuses, and other urban settings.
