The King County Library system Boulevard Branch location was built in the 1970's and was cut up with many walls and poor lighting, so they wanted to renovate the space to bring visual connection and openness throughout the space both to make patrons feel comfortable and secure as well as support the staff in doing their jobs more effectively. In order to expand, the client's program necessitated that the space be open with limited demising partitions. It was still imperative to the client that zones be clearly differentiated for specific patrons: kids, adults, and teens. A fairly neutral carpet was designed for the bulk of the building, allowing bold furniture color choices to identify specific areas for reading, study, and gathering. With a linear pattern and ombre tone across a two-tile repeat, the carpet gives the appearance of a continuous field while embracing the maintenance friendly format of carpet tiles. In the children’s area, the same carpet pattern was joined by the addition of red and purple dots, adding color, whimsy, and clear identity to the area’s function.
