Domokur Architects assisted the Office of the University Architect with coordinating and completing documents for this phased renovation of the Second Floor of the Main Library on the Kent Campus of Kent State University.
The project included a renovation of the entrance and lobby for the University executive offices as well as two of the Vice President offices and their respective support spaces and a complete renovation of the Periodicals Circulation Area.
Spaces were reorganized to accommodate the changing needs of area and function while new finishes were provided throughout lending to a more contemporary look which incorporated the unique detailing of the existing woodwork. The new finishes also encompassed the escalator space which serves as the public entry point leading from the Main Level Lobby up to the executive office entrance. A new adjacent gallery, which will be used to display artwork and other media, was also included in the design to create a more formal destination point.
