Student Center Renovation
Grub stop to Social hub for Elon University Student Center’s Reenergized-Renovation. The design solution objectives were to promote greater use of the student center and foster collaboration among various student groups. The renovation included: shared offices for student groups, flexible spaces for small and large group meetings, and a kitchen with multiple functions. Glass-front offices located throughout the student center provide an open, airy ambiance. A variety of movable tables and chairs provide quick lounge-style seating arrangements to accommodate a variety of collaborations. School colors keenly worked into the design encourages camaraderie, improve wayfinding while strengthening the university brand. On the second floor, a warren of wall-off suites for student leadership and outreach organizations was gutted to create a more inviting and collaborative layout. Glass-front suites were introduced to allow light to penetrate the deep floorplate into all interior spaces. Hallways were widened at key junctures to create casual study and collaboration spaces.
