Brown University Sydney E. Frank Digital Studio

The new Digital Studio within Brown University’s Rockefeller Library is both a renovation and an "upgrade" of a traditional media library into a contemporary Digital Studio. The design creates an open space for interaction and group work, surrounded by glass faced rooms for specific activities including a maker space, seminar room, consultation room, and audio-visual recording rooms. The open flexible work spaces are equipped with custom fabricated rolling tables that nest to allow for the space to be reconfigured. The project also included the redesign of the main circulation desk, which consists of a stone clad volume that contains all the circulation desk functions. The design transforms Rockefeller Library's existing Periodicals Room into a contemporary zone for collaboration, group learning and making.
