This project transforms an important Princeton research facility that was built in 1966. The 29,000 sf renovation and 17,000 sf addition expand open study areas, improve circulation, and increase access to technology. The Rare Book Room is wrapped by a glass wall, enhancing a sense of openness and creating transparency between interior and exterior spaces. A new third level accommodates seminar rooms. This light-filled floor is a favorite study space, with inspiring views of the campus. A below-grade level covered with a green roof houses compact shelving space and skylit study areas that encourage the use of non-circulating materials such as folio and elephant volumes. Users now have access to progressive digital resources and work spaces that are transforming visual arts education and research.
