Principal Stephen Teeple has just returned from Edmonton after touring our soon-to-completed Stanley A. Milner Library Renewal with City Architect Carol Belanger. Slated to be completed later this year, this high-profile project involves the renewal of Edmonton’s main branch library, which is located prominently on the city’s premier civic space, Sir Winston Churchill Square.
The Stantec + Teeple team approached the design by reconsidering the existing Milner Library as an expression of Edmonton Public Library’s forward-thinking values and civic role. To establish a new connection to the adjacent civic spaces, the original (deteriorating) precast concrete cladding was replaced, the 1990s addition was removed and urban connections were enhanced through strategic cuts into the building’s form.
