David Milling & Associates

Architect David Milling first began to work with Kalamazoo Public Library in late 1992 on pre-design consulting services for the central library.

Through an extensive series of meetings with staff, trustees and citizens, Milling helped the library discern future needs and changes, consider growth potential, and use design concepts in planning space utilization.

Milling introduced the library to the concept of “marketing services through design.” He advocated for buildings with charismatic presence – libraries that beckon the visitor to enter, to linger and to return.
