Rowland Designed was engaged to design multiple spaces within Purdue University’s Harrison Hall.  A former dining hall space was repurposed to a new student study and activity room. The university desired to pay homage to President William Henry Harrison for whom the hall is named. Custom art work was created that highlights pop-art portraits of leading American presidents. The reimagined space features vibrant colors and applications of bold stripes. The space is used primarily for games, study, television viewing and large student led meetings.

The lower level study lounge is a social hub catering to student study groups.  A blend of various seating including lounge, booth as well as a mix of tables and chairs offer students selections that best suit their study needs.  Much of the seating is on casters allowing for greater flexibility. Energetic colors were also used in the remodel in addition to dynamic carpet patterns.
