FleischmanGarcia was retained to design the Seffner-Mango Library by Hillsborough County.
This new, 15,000 sq. ft. library facility reuses the prototype floor plan from the firm's previously designed Upper Tampa Bay and Bloomingdale Regional Branch libraries, and is designed for a future addition of 10,000 sq. ft. The facility includes community rooms, a children's room, a computer lab, study and tutor rooms, "Friends of the Library" room, reading and stack areas and administrative functions.
Designed in a traditional architectural style to relate to the Seffner-Mango community, the building features brick, a green standing seam metal roof, traditional pediments with pre-cast concrete Doric columns and a porte-cochere in the same architectural vocabulary.
