LIBRARY REPROGRAMMING

Reinvigorating an underutilized library with new programs

UC Hastings engaged MKThink to develop a multi-phased campus master strategy toward the goal of becoming more competitive in attracting and retaining high caliber students. An imperative of the project was the consolidation of programs and physical assets without compromising the college’s commitment to a superior academic experience. MKThink targeted the consolidation of the school’s existing library from three floors to two. The project team conducted extensive stakeholder engagement and led a in-depth development process to inform the design of a space that serves as a hub for the school’s research and clinical programs and expands student resources.
