University of New Hampshire Babcock Hall Improvements

Durham, New Hampshire

Harriman provided design services for the renovations of the ground floor common areas of Babcock Hall. Individual small lounge and kitchen spaces were located on each upper residential floor, while the ground level provided larger study, game, and lounge spaces for the entire dormitory. The design unified those areas on the ground level; combining the game and lounge rooms to form a new central gathering space, upgrading existing study rooms, and introducing a new kitchen facility with room to serve for dining, while removing the previously used kitchens on upper floors.

General renovations included new floors finishes, lighting, wall paintings, window treatments, kitchen appliances, casework, and mechanical system replacements. Design services also included the selection of new furniture for all areas.
