VANCOUVER PUBLIC LIBRARY
Vancouver Public Library's Rooftop Garden opened for use in Sept 2018. This renovation involved cutting the roof off the existing building and creating an outdoor common space for public use that showcases Vancouver vistas. After 23 years since the initial opening of the library a large portion of the roof is now available for the public to use and enjoy.
VPL Rooftop Garden was a 4 month project that involved work on Lv 8, 9 and 10. The primary focus of the project was construction of the public area designed by Connect Landscape Architecture in conjunction with Cornelia Oberlander on Level 9. There was also an extensive replanting of material on the other levels to enhance the space.

Our team partnered with Smith Brothers and Wilson Construction to bring the concept into reality. This space is enjoyed by the public during all hours that the library is open.
