Meyer Group Architecture remodels UMD’s Humanities 4th Floor

The University of Minnesota-Duluth determined that the office space on the 4th Floor of the Humanities Building needed to be laid out to be more functionally effective. The current layout of the office is segmented and doesn’t provide office space for enough faculty members. We proposed two different floor plan options. The first plan involved demolishing interior walls and adding window walls to the interior hall space, providing a more open concept, allowing light into the office from multiple directions. The other option involved leaving existing walls in place, adding only furniture to accommodate up to 12 faculty and staff members. Both options involve centralizing and consolidating the Reception area. In either scenario, utilizing partially glazed panel systems to create personal office spaces for faculty, will allow light to move through the space and will encourage collaboration and communication.

We are happy to of been a part of this remodeling! Check out the photos below!
