The library

Right and left--looking toward the west toward the fireplace; center looking back east to the main building

The octagonal library is an extension to the main rectangular building at the far west end. Large circular window on the south and north faces provide natural light as does the atrium in the ceiling.


Two-story atrium


Paned and inset circular windows

The shelf/sill provides a place for shallow sculpture (see below)--a distraction I think from the tranquil natural setting outside.
