Columbia University Butler Library

di Domenico + Partners oversaw construction at Columbia University's Butler Library, a 1934 James Gamble Rogers design. The flagship library is the largest building on the Morningside Heights campus. The scope of work was part of a larger, much awaited renovation designed by Shepley, Bulfinch, Richardson, and Abbott. Interior work involved renovation of the upper four floors and stacks, the installation of new climate control systems, and construction of a rare books section. Exterior work included roof replacement, facade repair and cleaning, and reconstruction of the north entrance plaza. The project goal was to create a 21st century library. New technology was integrated throughout and interiors were restored to their original, elegant appearances.
