Castlewood Library

Castlewood Library is located in a beautiful brick building in South Denver, on Arapahoe Road, just off of the I-25. Recently, Douglas County Libraries decided to give this building a major update and revamped the entire interior.

We were honored to assist them with this task and help them with their goal of making the library a great place for the local community. Working alongside our partners at Oz Architecture, we acted as both consultants and fabrication experts, providing our design advice along with several pieces of custom made furniture. 

We started out by meeting with the stakeholders in order to gain a better understanding of their priorities and concerns. Ali Johnston from Oz Architecture had some wonderful ideas in mind and filled us in on all the details of their plan. We worked closely with her through the duration of the project to make sure our designs aligned with their vision and the needs of the library and librarians. 

Our first task was to create custom service points for the library’s front entrance and children’s section. We designed them to have a beautiful curved aesthetic and used free form, colored acrylic to give them an elegant, polished appearance.

In addition to these service points, we also created some customized versions of our Jellies, Canopies, and End Panels. These were made using Formica Compact, a versatile, durable material that provides generous design flexibility. A lovely patterned finish was selected and used across all the furniture to create a cohesive look. 

For the end panels, even further customizations were made. We added a t-slot to each panel to provide the library with the ability to create varied shelf configurations. Additionally, we added our Folds to four of these end panels to provide extra storage space. 

Finally, to wrap up the entire project, we helped put some safety mechanisms in place that would prepare the library for reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Sneezeguards were installed in areas where high levels of social interaction would take place, including service points and librarian desks.

We hope that with these new additions in place, the library will become a vibrant resource for its community and continue to provide support to those in need.

The Supple Collection is a unique brand of sustainable furniture for learning environments.
