The expansion of library is in the form of a new building around the old building, which was built in 1980’s. The new building of King Fahd Library has four levels. Some of the salient features of the main building are its PTFE membrane façade and steel roof. The steel roof covers the new building as well as the old building. The façade provides a strong architectural feature of the library building. The façade consists of a double layer diagonally arranged cable net system, with clipped in membrane shades. The membranes are supported via the cable net. Cables are pre-stressed between cantilever trusses of the roof structure and beams at level 1, propped with diagonal struts from level 2.
