Scarsdale Public Library Wins SARA National Design Award

Dattner Architects is excited to share that Scarsdale Public Library has won a national design award in the Renovation, Restoration, and Adaptive Re-use Category from the Society of American Registered Architects (SARA).

Scarsdale Library Lobby

This renovation and addition modernizes the existing 1951 facility by integrating state-of-the-art technology throughout, expanding public gathering spaces for community programming, and reorganizing circulation to improve the patron experience. While the flexible spaces, refreshed and re-envisioned interiors, and improved technological infrastructure are the highlights of the new library, the space also provides an expanded connection to the community it serves. Featuring an entrance plaza, a new café, and lobby that opens up to the library’s main collection area, daylight and views establish a strong connection from entry to exit. New programming opportunities, such as after-hours scheduling for the Technology Center and increased access of the expanded children’s area, solidify the library as a communal hub.
