DDI was retained as the Architect and Interior Designer to transform a circa 1959 Academic Library at the Moore College of Art & Design. The design concept reorganized the interior space along a new wood clad circulation spine that expands into and encapsulates the existing elevator lobby. This clear circulation hierarchy allowed for flexible and distinct spaces to be located along the window walls.
The window walls looking outward to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Logan Square were expanded by removing built-in bookcases to maximize the diffuse Northern light and views outward to this historic square. The transformation of the 8,300 square foot floor included new finishes, furnishings, lighting, a new multipurpose video conference room, support offices, technology, and a new Writing Center based in the Library.
