Project details

Imperial Beach Library

Delawie’s Interiors Studio worked with the County of San Diego on a 14,000 SF library in Imperial Beach, California. The library’s architecture was a collaborative effort by Domus Studio and Jeff Katz Architecture. This creative beach-themed library featured a vaulted “wave-like” roof over the main circulation space. The design reflected the local Imperial Beach community, with a lifeguard tower entrance, a replica Woodie car in the center of the library, and a custom-designed carpet to resemble ocean waves breaking on the sand. The new library offers even more facilities, resources and programming to create opportunities for children and their families to succeed in today’s knowledge-based community.
