Chester Public Library
Chester, CT

Hear what Library Director Linda Fox has to say about DRA:



The study explored options and strategies to remove architectural barriers for persons with disabilities and to expand this 2,000 SF historic library, with very limited land area.   The interior details will be restored. The ultimate goal is to provide a strong separation between old and new yet use similar proportions and materials to allow for the cohesive design of a 4,000 SF building.
