Vestavia Hills Public Library

Vestavia Hills, AL – The 34,000 sf “Library in the Forest” is located on 9 acres of property on Highway 31 in Vestavia Hills, Alabama. This project is the state of Alabama’s first LEED Gold certified library. Some unique features included in this state-of-the-art facility include a “living roof”, an observation deck that suspends over an outdoor classroom area. Vast expanses of glass open up the facility to its natural surroundings. Much of the wood used in the facility for millwork, doors, etc. was reclaimed from the original wooded site.
