City of Hamilton awards Waterdown Library and Civic Centre

Waterdown Library and Civic Centre received a City of Hamilton 2017 Award of Excellence, in the category of Public Buildings.

The jury commented: "An elegant civic amenity that makes an important contribution to the public realm in Waterdown. The architecture is well-scaled, beautifully detailed impressively practical and well executed. The landscape, in turn, is elegant and well-integrated with the architecture. Finally, the library successfully addresses the busy arterial on which is is located, thereby drawing attention to an important community asset. The jury notes the opportunity for the landscaping in front and the parking lot behind to allow for more community and spill-out functions."
