NYC SCA - New Visions Public School Libraries

di Domenico + Partners was retained by New Visions for Public Schools in association with the NYC School Construction Authority to design new high school campus libraries throughout the Five Boroughs. The new libraries are shared among multiple high schools housed in the same building/campus, and move beyond the stacks and classroom standards in NYC schools. An inclusive design process involving dD+P, New Visions, NYC SCA, librarians, teachers, and students, brought about a program including diverse areas such as Chill Zones, Flex Space, and an Information Hub. Improved lighting and acoustics, new furnishings, color and texture, and sustainable elements such as the use of existing furniture and materials were included.
