A dynamic collaboration zone established the design concept. This zone is made up of a long poured-in-place concrete table with power and data capability embedded into 40’ long six inch strip of walnut. A contrasting homasote wall surface helps to separate this collaborative space from the lounge spaces, and works to achieve optimal acoustics for discussion and concentration. A linear light overhead lines up with the power and data slots, as well as with the power nine logo at entrance. This space accommodates break out spaces for students to use between classes, offers space for temporary workstations, a surface for tech start-up company meetings and acts as a serving table for public events.

Extending the design emphasis on collaboration, a conference room doubles as small training, testing or war room. Glazing is used to partition smaller offices to achieve openness and light to pass through the space. 42” high film allows partial privacy and effectiveness in the office spaces. Walls with marker board paint surround informal meeting places, and a tectum bridge was developed to mask exposed mechanical and electrical systems nonprofit’s unique new home, a recently renovated Sears distribution facility that was vacant for 20 years.
