UCSD Geisel Library Eighth Floor
Quiet Study Flexes to Event Venue
In order to meet the evolving needs of the students, scholars, and the general community, a bold initiative was launched to transform the interior public spaces with a major renovation that would dramatically enhance the user experience. With Geisel Library’s top floor offering dramatic views of the campus and surrounding area, the conceptual design for the 8th floor accommodates special functions for day and night, ranging from Board meetings, speaking events, dinner and cocktail group meetings. Combining and seamlessly transitioning the two functions of individual study and social events, ID Studios took a contemporary take on modern; the finishes and furniture selected as the basis for the design, evoke a sense of ‘clean and contemporary’ while blending with the iconic architecture of Geisel Library.
