Building Description:

Mill Park library is visually stunning, and when it opened in 2002 at a cost of $8 million it was the first library in Victoria to be designed on the concept of a hybrid digital/print library.

The Mill Park Library is designed to present a monumental face to the public despite the limitation of being squeezed onto the rear portion of a relatively small parcel of land. This is achieved via a grand entrance that is dominated by a curved and tilted roof and supported by angled columns. Large windows add to the monumentality as well as maximise natural light for this west-facing facility.

Inside, the library design is rather plain and the opportunities for a landscaped garden outside are minimised by the requirement for an adequate car park. The Mill Park library is illuminated at night, which adds to its visual appeal.
