Whistler Public Library / Whistler Village, Canada
Acting as a bridge between the built-up fabric of Whistler Village and the adjacent community park, the library provides a bold civic facility and is both a showpiece of sustainable design and a contemporary response to its mountain resort context. Design features include innovative prefabricated wood roof panels, locally quarried basalt and a large gently sloping green roof. The new south facing entry plaza provides an important new civic space, while support spaces such as an end-of-trip shower and change facility for bicycle and cross country ski commuters ensured that this was the first LEED® Gold certified library in Canada.
