Modern libraries are beyond a storehouse for books. Pieper O’Brien Herr Architects creates libraries that are community centers organized around gathering, sharing and learning. Truly great libraries will create social spaces that are adaptable and flexible to the needs of future trends.
Communities are often judged on the quality of their parks and recreational facilities. Pieper O'Brien Herr Architects designs recreational centers as an amenity for the community. The health and wellness of the community depends on the arts and sports programs that the facility and park system can host. These projects often demand a flexible, durable, maintenance sensitive, adaptable and economical building.
PERFORMANCE & STUDIO
The performing arts are a vital part of society. Pieper O'Brien Herr Architects designs performance halls and studio spaces as places for creativity, expression and discovery. The audience experience in the performance is as important as the performers involvement. The stage, wings, backstage areas should be flexible for dance, theater, and musical performances.
