Furnishing and Wall System Academic Center, Monroe College

Interior Renovation

New Rochelle, NY

A unique, custom designed and built environment brings faculty and students “to the table” for focused learning. Development of the project required close collaboration between the design team and faculty to gain an understanding of the different types of learning environments that would be helpful in working with the students. Working in collaboration with Doban Architecture, Think Fabricate designed and fabricated custom furnishing elements and prefabricated wall systems for the facility. These included custom designed tables where two students and a teacher share a sliding white board  and computer monitor but each have their own key board; custom designed tables configured for group meetings; and faculty work tables in prefabricated offices for one-on-one tutoring. A new security desk and a reception desk were designed to further establish the unique character of the facility.
