We created spaces that supported a variety of engagement speeds and atmospheric sound levels, from deep independent focus spaces to small team discussion spaces, communal spaces, and messy hands-on spaces. We renovated and fabricated work surfaces to accomodate these needs, and thought critically about color, light, and sound.

We sourced new seating options and put casters on nearly everything to create a modular space, capable of accomodating both everyday traffic and large cultural events on campus.

We gave the main spaces of the library a unique and energetic character through a refreshed color palette, a full-wall homasote pin board, a mobile and modular planter system, and updates to the library’s branding and wayfinding.
