Sienna Branch Library

The Sienna Branch Library is a partnership with the Houston Community College System and is the first joint-use facility in the Fort Bend County Library System. The 44,989-square foot library is designed to be a family-friendly environment with specially designed spaces that feature individual areas for kids and teens and a community meeting room with a puppet theater so library visitors and their children can play, learn and grow together. The main library areas have natural light on both the first and second floors by a series of glazed openings framing spectacular views of the neighborhood and community college. The exterior of the building adhered to the standards of the neighboring community but infused a more contemporary massing and details that emphasize the horizontal layout of the design and the layering of different building functions.
