A visible, accessible, state-of-the-art library and a mixed-use campus center results from this total renovation. An addition, inserted below an existing, wide and under-used arcade that fronts on the main quad, provides an inviting, vibrant lounge and 24-hour study room with controlled separate entrance. Another similar infill on the opposite side of the building provides a gallery and study area. A lively palette of colors, furniture and activated facades, extensive natural lighting, efficient new lighting and mechanical systems provide a comfortable, sustainable environment.
