Taylor University - LaRita Boren Campus Center
Taylor University students did not have a community gathering space outside of their chapel. Design Collaborative proposed an answer to their prayers with a new student center located directly around and connected to that chapel.
This addition to the existing structure serves as their main space for dining with a two-story balcony and a variety of seating for students, including private, semi-private and public spaces. Students are able to enjoy the original brick of the building as well as natural light from the surrounding ceiling-to-floor windows. The new student center also includes meeting spaces, student life organizations offices, campus security, and an auditorium.
