Modern College Library Design

The new design for MATC’s downtown campus included a new library instruction room, various flexible group collaboration areas, individual study areas, and a new staircase to connect to the existing second-floor Academic Success Center. The renovation afforded a reduced stack footprint, increased access to technology, and introduced an abundance of natural light into the space with the installation of new windows.
