Library recognized for architecture

Two years after being built, the St. Helena Branch Library is again being recognized for its architecture and design.

Last week, the St. Helena Branch Library was featured as a 2014 Building of the Week in the American-Architects online newsletter. Since the beginning of the year, American-Architects has taken a state-by-state look for the feature. This week, American-Architects chose the St. Helena Branch Library as the building to highlight in South Carolina.

American-Architects describes the design of incorporating attributes of the Gullah-Geechee Sea Island culture and its modern look and feel as the reasoning for the library being chosen as this week’s winner.

In 2013, the St. Helena Branch Library won two awards during the American Institute of Architects South Carolina Conference for Best Architecture Honor Award and Committee on the Environment Honor Award.
