Northwest Nazarene University

The library and learning commons of this century old university were designed and furnished with an eye on the future of learning.

In Partnership With - Earl Swensson Associates, Inc.

This 56,000 square foot building features study rooms, a learning lab, quiet study lounge with a cozy fireplace, and many types of tables and seating options for a variety or postures. Group work rooms were equipped with ClickShare, allowing students to instantly connect and project computer files onto shared monitors. Spacesaver shelving from the original NNU library was repurposed, adding custom wood end panels to match the library’s warm aesthetic.
