Upon completion, this new Campus Center will be a dynamic center of University life; enabling the greater Harvard community to come together in new and exciting ways. The design team of London-based Hopkins Architects, with Cambridge-based Bruner/Cott as executive architect, have teamed up with Consigli Construction to complete the campus. The design includes flexible indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, meeting and event spaces, and lounge and study areas. These areas showcase architectural woodwork manufactured and installed by Millwork One; such as expansive wood wall paneling, case goods and elaborate built in benches. All produced from European Steamed Beech. A solid surface clad reception desk greets you as you enter the space. Lastly a highly crafted IPE rooftop terrace designed by the Cambridge office of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates tops off the space.
The Smith Campus Center is scheduled to open in 2018 and is named for its major donors, Richard A. and Susan F. Smith. It is part of a multiyear effort to create and improve common spaces across the University as a way to ensure its physical spaces foster the intellectual, cultural, and social experience in which Millwork One is excited to part of.
