Renovate, Innovate, Update – CORE and the Mount Pleasant Library

The Carnegie Corporation of New York awarded a single government grant totaling $682,000 which paid for the construction of four public libraries. One of the last Carnegie libraries built in the United States using that grant is the Mount Pleasant Library in Washington, DC. The Mount Pleasant Library was originally built in 1925, and was recently renovated and expanded by DC-based architecture/design firm CORE using ArchiCAD.

The Mount Pleasant Library was recognized for design excellence by the DC Chapter of the American Institute of Architects with an Honor Award, Unbuilt Category 2009 and the American Institute of Architects DC Chapter, Merit Award for Historic Resources, 2013.

In addition, the Library is seeking LEED Certification for environmentally-friendly design.
