Wallingford Branch Architecture
The relocated Wallingford Branch is the second project completed under the "Libraries for All" building program. The Miller|Hull Partnership designed the Solid Ground building (formerly the Fremont Public Association Resource Center) with the Library in mind as a possible tenant. Miller|Hull also designed the Library’s space, which was built by Harmatta Construction. The distinguished yet approachable building consolidates community services and volunteers under one roof.
About the building
Storefronts of businesses on North 45th Street are typically right up against the sidewalk. To fit with the rest of the neighborhood, the branch has a shop front window that brings all the activity right up to the street. The front window of the branch is on a corner of the building, which gives it the look of a bay window.
