Christendom College Library
In 2002, our architecture firm in Virginia combined classical and traditional elements, in keeping with Virginia’s architectural heritage, to create a new school library for Christendom College’s school campus. The basic form was inspired by the college’s guiding principles: the octagonal, domed entry hall stands as a metaphor for Faith, while the two-story atrium at the core of the library embodies Reason.
O’Brien & Keane also enjoyed the unique opportunity to design the furnishings and interior detailing to complement the architecture, including custom furniture, case work, paneling, molding, and doors.
