Embudo Valley Library / by Alexander Dzurec

Autotroph is pleased to introduce the Embudo Valley Library.  Opened in 2014, this new facility is the result of years of work with the community, library board, Executive Director Felicity Fonseca and Paragon Construction.  This 3,000 SF facility is a community gem, providing residents with access to its 20,000+ volume collection, meeting space, computer resources, children's and teen collections.  The building features passive solar features including ventilated trombe walls and adobe construction.  Abundant daylight and natural ventilation further contribute to the aggressive energy conservation targets.  Also included in the project was the renovation of the former library (an historic house) into a community center.  For more info on the project visit the project page here.
