Gum Spring Library
Stone Ridge, VA
Samaha was offered a unique opportunity to support the Loudoun County Department of Transportation & Capital Infrastructure (LCDTCI) by providing construction administration, interior design, and FF&E services for a public library that was designed by another group as a part of a public private partnership. Through our term contract with Loudoun County, Samaha assisted with getting the construction underway while simultaneously meeting with LCDTCI, library staff, and interested volunteers to solve any outstanding problems and ensure that the library was delivered in a form that reinforced their sense of community through collaboration in the process.
Our team selected furniture and finishes to create distinctive spaces that worked together as a comprehensive design. Following the preliminary selection of furnishings we modeled the entire building interior in 3D and applied finishes to convey the sense of scale, color, and materiality throughout the space. Gum Spring Library’s success was prove on opening day when an overwhelming 6,500 patrons poured through the two story, 40,000 SF space.
