Steve Johnson and Jim Favaro of Johnson Favaro take Interior Design inside the freshly renovated Beverly Hills Library in Los Angeles, a 1960s-era building with a 1990 addition by Charles Moore. The architects brought improved circulation and increased interior daylight to the 75,000-square-foot library, which offers one of the best fine arts collections in the region. Here, Johnson and Favaro talk about the large-scale renovation of the children and teen areas and main lobby, which includes whimsical touches like jumbo-sized reprints of book pages, beautiful script translated into carpet, and a hopscotch-style alphabet—fuel for imagination that children will surely remember long after they've graduated from fairy tales to textbooks.
