Half Moon Bay Library

Honoring the area's agricultural roots and coastal environment

This new regional library in San Mateo County will vastly expand and modernize library resources for the larger Coastside community—from Montara to Pescadero. Naturally weathering materials—wood, concrete, Cor-Ten steel, copper, zinc, and stone—along with the judicious use of glazing, contributes to a design that is sophisticated yet fits well in its neighborhood. The library will feature daylit interior spaces, outdoor reading plazas, acoustically separated areas for teen activities, and a flexible maker space.

“It doesn’t look like anything in Half Moon Bay, but it looks like it fits.”
