providing innovative design ideas to help our clients achieve their strategic goals

Albany, GA

This new 16,000 square foot public library branch opened fall of 2009. It is Albany’s first architectural project seeking LEED Certification. This responsible design effectively utilized an existing building shell and brought new life to a vacant building and lot. It incorporates energy efficient lighting and mechanical systems as well as interior finishes that were selected to minimize negative impact on indoor air quality. Key features of the design are an audio/video area, computer lab, general collection area, and children’s space. A coffee shop and display wall for community art were also incorporated to give more opportunity for public interaction.

Commercial & Public Sector

Public sector institutions and agencies by definition exist to serve citizens, and the structures that house them should be designed to further that goal.

SRJ-designed public buildings are on a human scale. The goal is to create an environment that helps the institutions they house serve their constituencies while never losing sight of the convenience of those who work there.

Our planning and design process always draws from the various parties involved, distilling their input down to the essentials that go into creating spaces that reflect their goals and allow them to best serve their public.
