Seattle University: Lemieux Library & McGoldrick Learning Center

Seattle, WA

An aging university library comes into the new century, greatly enhancing campus life in the process.

The renovation and addition of the A.A. Lemieux Library improves and significantly expands the existing 1966 facility, while accommodating a host of new services. The building features media development services, tutoring centers, distance learning, instructional design and multi-media instruction, 24/7 study areas, interactive classrooms, special collections, and a vibrant café with terrace seating. Its design seamlessly integrates the old with the new. Moreover, the expansion joins the student center, shaping a new public space that anchors the west end of campus, making it a popular destination. In addition, a combination of hardscape and softscape provides a student gathering space while also capturing rainwater in a large bio-swale, creating an inspirational rain garden while demonstrating the university’s commitment to sustainability.

This project was renovated and expanded by Pfeiffer prior to joining Perkins Eastman.
