PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Norfolk State University was looking for a Downtown presence to better connect students, faculty, and alumni with the greater business community. In partnership with the City of Norfolk, the NSU Research and Innovation Foundation relocated in the heart of the business district on Main Street. The space is a model for flexibility and seating choice and houses small and large conference areas that can be reconfigured many different ways. The space also includes individual break-out spaces and collaborative work areas, informal sitting and lounge areas, a catering kitchen/break room and four touch-down office spaces. There is no formally defined end-user, so the space can serve many purposes. Work Program Architects used demountable glass partitions to provide light into the back of the space, FilzFelt movable hanging panels to define the conference/training area without locking the client into a permanent configuration and worked to integrate advanced intuitive technology for collaborative group work and presentations.
