The Vaughan Civic Centre is a new administrative campus of municipal buildings within one of Canada’s fasting growing cities. A new library built as a stand-alone building with strong urban design ties to the newly built Civic Centre includes a multi-storey marketplace comprised of retail space, a café, community information panels and the library’s main service desk that provides access to a second storey containing offices for the Vaughan Public Library main administration.

The library features soft-seating areas arranged in a theatre-like configuration that cascade downwards to the building’s lower level, as well as a large study hall supported by a computer training suite. The architecture of the library is very transparent and capitalizes on views of the internal courtyard, the Civic Square and a City Park. The facility is intended to achieve LEED Gold® certification by the CaGBC.
