A Second Draft for North York’s Library

By Eric Mutrie

Don’t judge the North York Central Library by its concrete cover – inside, the 30-year-old landmark is in the midst of a dramatic rewrite. Over the next three years, Diamond Schmitt Architects will create a flexible reading space with improved interconnectivity between floors. The cascading staircases that swirl throughout the branch’s atrium, originally designed by Moriyama & Teshima, will be revamped with glass railings. A new rooftop reading garden will encourage visitors to make the full seven-storey climb.
