Mississauga Central Library Revitalization

Mississauga, Ontario

2016 -

This revitalization project is a major interior renovation to all five floors of the existing central library in the core downtown area.  This facility provides library services as well as the central administration and logistic support to all branch libraries throughout the city. The new library will provide for public collections; a library cafe; flexible event space; bookable meeting space; teen area; children and family areas; a municipal business enterprise center; exhibition space; the refurbished Noel Ryan auditorium; flexible areas for open study, staff administrative spaces; and a new technology-focused digital hub with facilities for events, lectures and seminars; and active creation spaces. The design concept breaks down barriers to create visual and physical interconnection across each level with a dynamic restructuring of two atrium spaces to transform the interior architecture of this important community institution.
