Hayward Library & Community Learning Center – Special Commendation

The new Hayward Library is a centerpiece of social infrastructure—a multi-functional, multi-generational learning center. Each floor builds upon the previous, reflecting the advancement of knowledge through different seasons of life: the first floor is colorful and playful; the second for active learning; the third is quiet and focused. The building currently operates as Zero Net Energy, pending certification by NBI, and is on track to receive LEED Platinum Certification.

“A very well integrated project that reaches out beyond the footprint of the building to achieve its net zero energy performance, while providing a broad range of programs and amenities for the community.”
