The new Laurel Branch Library in Maryland was built to be much more than a repository for books and other media. Grimm+Parker Architects designed the library to serve as a modern space for discovery, as well as an overall central hub for the local community.
When selecting exterior panels for a new YMCA facility in Exeter, New Hampshire, specifiers wanted a system that was durable enough to protect the building against the region’s wet, cold winters, but also visually soft enough to make the center inviting for visitors.
