HHL Architects redesigned this facility to incorporate a bright and welcoming student study and computer lab space. Using circular patterns for the floor and workstations, HHL Architects changed the appearance of this square shaped concrete and brick space into a lively and contemporary place for students of all ages to work, study, and collaborate while learning.

The predominant colors are neutral, except for the golden walls, the red power and data raceways, and the yellow, red, and purple fabrics of the seating. Two glass-walled study rooms were designed at the edge of the open work area to be private, while still being visible for security and social purposes.
