SNHU Learning Commons Takes Form

As the Library Learning Commons at Southern New Hampshire University nears the end of schematic design, Perry Dean is looking at site, massing, and program organization. The current landscape strategy (designed with Carol R. Johnson Associates) hopes to establish an open gathering space directly in front of the library, while contributing to a continuous campus green space.  The building encloses this open space and maximizes solar benefits.  Inside the learning commons, collaborative work spaces combined with enclosed study rooms make up a variety of study configurations.
