Long Beach, California
California State University, Long Beach Brotman Hall
The renovation to CSU Long Beach’s Brotman Hall is designed to create sustainable, welcoming spaces that improve users’ physical and psychological well-being.
The newly refreshed space exposes the building’s concrete structure and mechanical systems, offering an industrial spin on the otherwise traditional environment. A bright and airy break room serves as the social center of the department, and collaboration stations are nestled throughout the office, offering opportunities for cross-office partnerships. Booth structures create a natural separation of the spaces and offices are moved away from the exterior wall to maximize access to natural light.
