Dayton Metropolitan Library
AWARD WINNING LIBRARY AND MASONRY
The main branch of the Dayton Metro Library held a Grand Opening in August 2017. The new 224,000 square foot structure provided a broad scope of work for the Gostomsky Masonry team. In addition to three 65-foot stair towers, two elevator shafts extended from two stories underground to 65 feet into the air to provide access from a new underground parking garage to the new three-story library.
In an effort to preserve historical elements of the previous library building, the Gostomsky team took granite from the old building and used it to build the memorial sign across the street with a statue. Standing 40 feet high, it is a block structure wrapped with fabricated pieces of 4.5” thick repurposed granite.
The granite was also incorporated into the stairwell bases on the main floor, reflecting light from the beautiful new three-story atrium.
Gostomsky Masonry’s work on this project garnered them another MCAD award for Excellence in Masonry.
