Westbrook Public Library
Westbrook, CT

“Ken did an outstanding job combining the old with the new, creating a harmonious, beautiful new look for our library. The interior is spacious, bright, and welcoming and it is a pleasure to spend time in the building.”

Lew Daniels, Library Director


The complete interior and exterior renovation transformed what was once a dark uninviting building into a bright and welcoming library. The cupola over the Children’s Room not only brings natural light into the center of the space, but serves as a beacon of identity for the library on its town centralized site.
