Riverside Main Library

Riverside, California

Client: Johnson Favaro Architects

Building Size: 40,000 SF

Project Cost: $30 Million

Certifications: Seeking LEED Gold

The new main library takes up 40,000 square feet of a 2.5 acre site in downtown Riverside. The majority of the library resides on the second floor of the three-story mixed-use building. At over thirty feet above ground, patrons can enjoy panoramic views of the city as well as the natural landscape, including Mount Rubidoux to the southwest. Peering out in all directions will reward visitors with sights of the San Gabriel, San Bernardino and Box Spring mountains. The outdoor terrace and open air ground floor allow not only for fresh air and outside time, but also welcome a flux of events such as farmers markets and book fairs. This library will vastly foster and benefit the community with these features.
