Half Moon Bay Library

Sustainable Community Infrastructure

Special Commendation


The challenge was to build a large, beautiful, future-focused library that anticipates the needs of a diverse population without overwhelming the laid-back beach town of Half Moon Bay. With a refined coastal palette, this public building looks like nothing around it, yet still fits the surrounding area.

The jury admired this project for championing a sustainable community infrastructure. The net-positive energy building is a huge accomplishment, and the community focus of the program elevates the structure to a socially resilient space.
