Library and Reading Room
Phoenix Seminary is a nationally-recognized, graduate level theological seminary. A new master plan was developed to revitalize the existing campus. The expansion includes a one story addition to the existing Administration Building and a new 10,500 sf Library and renovation of the existing Chapel. The placement of the Library is located between the existing Chapel and Administration Building. This location creates a new defined space that gives a meaningful center to the campus. The architecture of the new Library draws references from the existing buildings while providing a distinct architecture for the Library entry. The new Library incorporates student study areas and faculty offices which are organized for the dissemination of knowledge. Natural light within the space provides an atmosphere for learning.
