SEMIAHMOO LIBRARY + RCMP DETACHMENT


Surrey, BC

As part of a Design / Build competition, DGBK designed, to the Working Drawings stage, a new facility for the City of Surrey comprising of an RCMP detachment on the main floor, and a community library sharing the main florr and occupying the second floor.

Careful attention was paid to access and security for the RCMP facility, while not limiting the access to the community library. Attention was also paid to a high level of daylight for the library facility and a sense of community and connectedness between the RCMP lobby and the library entrance.
