James Baldwin Library

Lowe Hardware had the opportunity to partner with Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects | Partners on the redesign of a door lever, thumb turn and roses for the James Baldwin Library at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, NH.

In the design of this lever and thumbturn, the balanced massing, pinched forms and opposed planes lend subtle interest to a simple piece. The result is a true expression of modernism.
