Future-Proofing Libraries Through Flexible Design

Founded 50 years ago, Grimm and Parker Architects is a firm of 100 with its main office in Calverton, MD. As community architects, G+P’s portfolio comprises civic and public architecture. Between standalone libraries and education projects, about 75 percent of the firm’s work incorporates library design. “We strive to be good stewards of public funds,” says Partner and Director of Design Antonio Rebelo. To do that, G+P aims for durability and sustainability. In fact, all of the firm’s projects qualify for at least LEED silver certification.

“We got the entire community behind this project, because we were celebrating something that's uniquely theirs.”
