The Hightower Library renovation for Gordon State College was one of the first start-to-finish projects that I undertook. Working at Houser Walker Architecture, I along with the design team collaborated with the school to redesign their library space. The design intent was to turn the library from a place for books to a place for students. We turned the dark and cloistered library to an academic learning space for the college students and faculty. Incorporating study rooms, collaborative rooms, divisible instructional spaces, the Hightower Library Renovation was reimagined as a learning space that helps educate young minds.
