Fairfax Branch Library

Location:Fairfax District, Los Angeles, CA
Size:12,500 sq. ft.

The Fairfax Branch Library is a Mission Revival Styled facility built in and for the Fairfax Community in the Miracle Mile North Historic Preservation Overlay Zone.  While classical in its design and layout, the building incorporates state-of-the-art technology for learning with special areas for children, young adults, reserve collections and computer research.

A sky-lit interior “courtyard” anchors and organizes the interior space, with all library elements arrayed around it for ease of communication and supervision.  A community meeting room anchors, and is independently accessible from, the library’s entry lobby.
