After fifteen years of traffic and wear, the City of North Richland Hills decided it was time to update the look and layout of the main public library. With the help and vision of 720 Design, the 18 month long process of budgeting and planning, material selection and ultimately installation was finally completed in time for the new year. While simplifying from the original overly busy scheme, the designer's addition of vibrant color and movement, plus creating traffic flow through space separation and unique layout has brought the city and their patrons a new warm and inviting design to last for years to come.
Unique Installation Challenge Strategy
With the difficulties of the Covid crisis, the library had been shut down for months, the city had finally been able to open its doors back up to the public just before the installation was set to begin, and opted to stay open throughout the renovation, so as not to add additional inconvenience to the people they serve. The two story, 40,000 square foot demolition and installation was done during regular business hours, complete with stack moving and reconfiguration, with the intent to minimize the impact to the patrons. At the end of a month of coordination and phasing, the end result was well worth the time and effort spent.
