Troutdale Library – Interiors

This 6,000-square-foot library offers a community meeting room, 16 public computers, spaces for kids and teens, and access to Multnomah County Library’s 2 million books and other materials. Sustainable building features included Douglas fir ceiling and wall panels with Forest Stewardship Council certification, end panels made of low-emitting material and 40 percent recycled content, furniture made of recycled content, and low-VOC paint, adhesives, and carpet. In addition to producing full design and construction documents, Hennebery Eddy assisted Multnomah County in evaluating various site locations for the Troutdale Library based on economic viability and criteria developed by the community. This tenant space option proved to be a very economical approach for the county.
