Description

This was a project for Interior Studio V during undergrad year four. The Site for this project was on the ground floor of a Boston University academic building at 808 Commonwealth Ave. in Boston. The building was designed by Albert Kahn in 1927 as Cadillac showroom. This project needed to cater to Adults, Adolescents and Children as well as the greater community. In addition to reading rooms and back-of-house functions, A community program space had to be accounted for and accessible outside of library hours. Another challenge for this project was to preserve certain historical elements of the building like the historical plaster ceiling in the original showroom space in the front half of the building.
