The Costa Mesa Donald Dungan Library is one part of the larger Lions Park Project which includes construction of the new 22,500-square-foot library.
The architecture of the new library channels flamboyant mid-20th century modernist architecture, but also looks back several hundred years to the austere and sublime beauty of California’s missions, models of exuberant yet restrained grandeur accomplished with economical means.
Our client, Giroux Glass, worked through the complicated design, while keeping to the challenging schedule. Their scope included the installation of the curved, structural glass wall, as well as the curtain walls, storefronts, sliding glass walls, custom graphic glass, arched openings and skylights, all in eight months. Considering all of the engineering requirements that needed to be met, the installation was a great success. KLEIN accompanied the team during all phases of the project, from the very start until its completion.
EXTENDO 2 doors
Thanks to its versatility and wide range of applications, EXTENDO telescopic doors were the ideal solution: EXTENDO 2 was combined to meet the project requirements. The challenge was to create a glass cube in the middle of the library to create a private and silent space with easy circulation.
Architects opted to use EXTENDO as a partition combining glass wall and frameless sliding glass doors to separate this space without dividing.
EXTENDO is not only very aesthetically pleasing, but also is designed to divide space through simultaneous sliding frameless glass doors providing a large opening with a minimal storing space, providing the highest degree of openness.
The decorated glasses allow visitors to enjoy a relaxing space in the middle of the library, but in a completely different environment full of personality.
Here at KLEIN, we are devoted to leaving a mark on the world with high-quality, innovative, and aesthetically pleasing systems.
