McGill University — Redpath Library Cyberthèque
Design developed through association of B+H and ékm architecture.
This project's first phase involved a master plan to transform McGill's most historic library into a new type of academic library geared towards a new Internet generation. The second phase was to execute a 10,000-square foot portion of that plan on the campus level of the library.
Features include glassed-in group study pods, banquettes, quiet tables with or without computers for individual study, an e-classroom for information skills classes and programs, assignment production area, central information point called the "genius bar", and casual study areas with bright, comfortable lounges. B+H worked in association with ékm architecture on the design.
