Friedman Study Commons 

Brown University    

The Friedman Study Center is located inside Brown’s Sciences Library. The project consisted of a 37,000-sf (3,400-sm) renovation to create new study spaces, a cafe and an information commons. The Friedman Study Center is organized around study activities and their corresponding noise volumes. Several micro environments, each furnished with a distinct identity. Brightly colored furniture and vivid patterns refer to the existing building’s 1960’s debut.
