Manasc Isaac revitalized the St. Albert Public Library’s interiors and created a road map for its future expansion, solidifying its function as a cultural and community heart for the city.

In 2006, our design team refreshed the look and feel of the St. Albert Public Library space, updating and lifting the interiors using sustainable materials.

The renovations were such a success that the board retained Manasc Isaac to complete further studies explaining possible expansion alternatives. Weighing the pros and cons of building a new branch site, all stakeholders agree that the preferred option is to remain on a single site, due to both operational and cultural efficacy.
