MYCO provided architectural and interior design services for the remodel and rehabilitation of the art-deco
style Downtown Bremerton Public Library. The library was  built in 1938 under the PWA program and had
suffered severe deterioration due to general neglect.  Exterior work included cleaning, patching and
repainting with historically accurate colors and replacement of the 70 year old windows with up-to-date
energy efficient ones while maintaining the original window design patterns.   In addition to refinishing the
interior, period lighting fixtures were installed as well as upgrading the lighting to today's standards, adding
new phone and data systems and designing new rest rooms for handicap accessibility.

Testimonial from James H. Robinson, CEO of James H. Robinson Company, Inc.
"Dear Miles...Just a note of appreciation for all that you did to facilitate things that made the Downtown Library project
go so very smoothly.  ...I have talked to a number of folks who were there for the event (Grand Opening) and others who
have been in the Library since the opening...everyone has been most complimentary.  The design and color scheme
seems to have struck a very favorable response with the public generally.  You and your staff should take a bow on that
also.  ...Thanks again, to you and your staff, for making this project a very pleasant experience."
