Design and fabrication for a new student lounge at Hampshire College, Amherst MA. Seeking to create a natural gathering spot, we designed a dramatic “technology bar“ to serve as the hub for the renovated student lounge. The custom bar and pendant lights provide an inviting place for students to gather, and create a visual beacon inside and outside the building. Built-in bench seats line the large common area, creating a variety of informal meeting spaces. Specht Harpman Architects.
