The dynamic changes in our society in recent years have created a dramatic increase in innovating renovation trends in Higher Education facilities across the country. Atlanta Technical College is a perfect example of these renovation trends. Hillsman was selected to renovate Atlanta Technical College’s “Student Lounge”. The new space now serves the multiple functions understanding of the alignment of learning space to the evolving needs that come from new ways of learning. Traditional Student Lounges are progressively being replaced by a variety of multi-functional learning settings to support contemporary learning activities.
The space now supports the school’s overall vision and aligns with the needs of both the faculty and students. Renovations can make an old space new and create a welcomed break in between classes or studying, enabling students, faculty and guest to socialize study or simply grab a small bite to eat.
