John Barton Payne Library ADA Addition & Renovations
Several schematic design options were submitted to the Warrenton Architectural Review Board in order to provide ADA accessibility, and to increase the occupancy load by creating a second exit. An addition was constructed that is sympathetic to the historic character of the old library. The design utilizes a glass hyphen between the old and new structures to maintain the form of the historic building. Landscaping is planned to mask the lower portion of the building where the stair precluded use of windows.
