+ WFU Welcome Center Interiors
LAMBERT was charged with “revere and revise” upon creating this LEED Gold Welcome Center. The interior furniture, fixtures, and overall palette in this 22,000SF facility blend to create a cozy atmosphere, inviting students and parents to relax before interviews and information sessions. A blend of the existing period pieces with new modern furniture items created an eclectic mix which met the University’s objective, representing the style the client wanted to achieve.
Generous windows surround the “Conservatory” introducing natural light into the building.
