Tully Library | San Jose Public Library
Brad led the design of the 24,500 square foot public Tully Library while owner and principal architect at a former firm. This included appropriately locating a new branch library, ball fields, and parking within a master plan of 19 acres in central San José. The library anchors the corner of the overall site with a barn-shaped form that reflects the agrarian history of this site. The project incorporates an under-floor air distribution system so that, despite its lofty volume, energy consumption is vastly decreased from standard practices. The sustainably designed project received a Water Quality Award for exemplary water efficiency and water treatment strategies.
