Wight designed Orland Park’s new 96,000-sf Public Library, intentionally incorporating it into the Orland Park downtown area. Before beginning design work, Wight collaborated with the library staff and surrounding community to define the needs of the space. As a result, the Orland Park Library has both intentional spaces for community activities and an open, airy layout for its inviting and functional library spaces.
