AKA THIS IS A LIBRARY? WHOA!

How do you use the space under a stadium’s massive bleachers? The University of Pennsylvania chose to make it a library, complete with conference rooms, private study rooms, lounge areas, and yes, a few books.

 

We provided furniture to match a variety of finishes and uses, installed glass walls to lend the space elegant privacy, and conceived design to help turn what might have been a boring space into a premier campus study suite.
