The three elementary school library renovation projects featured here were completed by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture acting as members of the Washington Architectural Foundation. The renovation projects are a part of a larger mission of the School Libraries Project, a local non-profit organization to transform eight public elementary and middle school libraries in the Capitol Hill neighborhood into vibrant centers of school life. The design, management and construction of each library were completed in conjunction with the respective staff and volunteers of Brent Elementary School, Payne Elementary School and Peabody Early Childhood Center. The budget on each project was very limited, sixty to seventy-two dollars a square foot. Studio Twenty Seven Architecture had six weeks to draw the projects, which were then built over the summer vacation.
