Peninsula Community Library
Old Mission Peninsula
New Building

Cornwell Architects was responsible for creating a design for the new Peninsula Community Library that blends in with the agricultural history of the Old Mission Peninsula. The overall look and feel of the building reflects the farmhouse esthetic with board and batten siding, standing seem metal roofing, exposed wood trusses in the interior and a warm stone-clad fireplace.

The durability of the composite board and batten siding helps reduce maintainance and the energy efficiency of the continuous insulation on the exterior of the bulding to meet todays energy codes helps to lower energy costs on this 6000 SF building.

The library board conducted a user survey to collect information about a future home for the Library.  Our Team was asked to synthesize this information and create a formal space program for the Board’s approval. We then created Graphic renderings to be used for a fundraising campaign and for Township site plan approval.
