The design of new Dublin branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) system was first unveiled back in January, but as of today the design has gotten a bit of a touch-up. A new “transition” element has been added to the design to provide a connection from historic Dublin’s architecture to the contemporary design of the new structures.

“Twenty-first century libraries reflect the communities they serve,” stated CML CEO Patrick Losinski in a release issued today. “This architectural element – and the new library it highlights – will serve as a visual embodiment of Dublin’s history and its motto: ‘Where Yesterday Meets Tomorrow’.”

The changes are a result of a public input session that took place this summer, and project architect NBBJ has worked the feedback into the updated design. The new element (shown in the rendering above) now includes a recreated corner of the historic school building that occupied the library site in the 1800s.

Construction of the new three-story 41,000 square foot facility at 75 North High Street is slated to begin later this year with a grand opening planned for 2019. Plans also call for a new four-story parking garage adjacent to the building that would serve both the library and neighboring businesses in the immediate area.
