SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY
Our team just completed a phased renovation project for this 24,000 SF library. This project is focused on re-configuring the existing space into a flexible and technology-rich resource for students and faculty. Upgrades to furnishings, finishes, lighting, acoustics, and technology will help the library develop a variety of environments both for collaborative learning and individual study while also reducing their collection and making materials more accessible.
It was also important to the Library to incorporate natural materials into the space through furniture and finishes creating an entirely new feel. Other project goals include consolidating staff into one location, expanding the popular 24 / 7 area, and coordinating the materials, equipment, and services offered with the curriculum.
