Project Description

Marmon Mok designed the Parman Branch Library at Stone Oak which serves San Antonio’s growing population on the far north edge of the city. Careful consideration was given to providing views out to the rolling Hill Country prairie populated by native grasses, prickly pears, and elms, as well as neighboring limestone escarpments and a dry creek bed.

Taking cues from local, historic structures, Marmon Mok incorporated ample overhangs, screens, rambling pathways, and stone walls into the library design. Natural light has also sculpted the shape of the building, which features expanses of high-performance glazing interspersed with translucent insulated panels. The facility utilizes a variety of high performance building features, and was awarded LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
