For this project, the team’s focus was to increase the identity of student services on their campus and to provide an improved experience for recruiting and registration of new and existing students.

Reorganized floor plan accommodated new needs.

The existing open office was reorganized, and the design developed private offices, shared conference space and work rooms. We created a public lobby with a revitalized front door to the space, satisfying the space needs during registration and serving as a common area the rest of the year. Wayfinding was developed throughout to give the students and staff a better experience with recruiting and registration. One unique feature was a custom pattern developed by the design team that was digitally printed onto the glazing to reduce glare during the day while permitting enough transparency to serve as a welcoming lantern for the campus at night.

Other team members: Laura Peterson, Kerry Weig, Mike Bechtel and Mark Nevenhoven

The front door experience was redeveloped for students with this project. We created a one-stop-shop for student services that welcomes students and streamlines the process for meeting their needs.
