Addition to the Bibliothque de Charlesbourg.

From an open anonymous competition, Croft Pelletier Architectes has been selected to design a 3000 square metre addition to the Bibliothque de Charlesbourg, a library in Quebec City. Located in the historical district known as “le Trait-Carr de Charlesbourg,” the $5.5 million project was chosen for its address of the particular character of the site, the landscape and the historical buildings. A separate component of the Croft Pelletier project will comprise a $1.1 million landscape design. The short-listed finalists in the competition were Ct Chabot Morel, architectes + Jacques White, architecte; Atelier Big City + NIP Paysages + LOEUF; and Double G architectes + Vlan pasyage. The new library is scheduled to open in 2005.
