URI Carothers Library and Learning Commons

The first phase of this multi-phased renovation at the University of Rhode Island’s Carothers Library transformed a large, open space into an innovative student learning environment. The Learning Commons was designed to promote different learning styles, including individual study, large collaborative group study, and small group study. Private and group practice rooms, and carefully designed open seating arrangements with wired-in technology interface, promote different levels of student interaction. DBVW’s work on this project included full renovation of 10,000 square feet of space, including furniture and finish selection.
