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.

In partnership with Ratio Architects, Rowland Design provided interior finish and furniture design for the phased renovation of the Butler University’s historic Hinkle Fieldhouse.  The essential goal of the project was to provide student athletes, staff and guests with modern amenities while maintaining the appeal of the existing period building.

Aesthetics for an important space named the Wildman Room were inspired by a 1928 yearbook, The Drift, which was the year the Fieldhouse was completed.  Notable features of the space include rich wood paneling, an Art-Deco bar along with a hand painted 1920’s style mural depicting life and times at the university.  A host of additional spaces throughout the building were also reconfigured and designed.

Location: IUPUI | Indianapolis, IN

The goal of this collaborative project is to enhance student learning and engagement at the library.  The long wall along the window that once held 68 isolated, stationary study carrels incorporates design components reflective of the study habits and methods of today’s student. Research has shown that spaces that encourage collaboration and active participation increase the likelihood that learners will retain and be able to apply information later.

By using green and renewable materials and by drawing on natural themes in its design, the Learning Spaces project also is an expression of the campus commitment to the environment and sustainable practices.

Project completed in affiliation with CSO Architects, Maregatti Interiors and RJE Business Interiors.

Size: 700 square feet

Rowland Design converted a little-used formal lounge at the heart of Wabash’s campus into a restaurant and pub that provides an improved gathering space available to all students and faculty to foster community interaction.

The intent for this renovation was to use a minimal budget for maximum impact. Wall-to-wall carpeting was removed to expose the original hardwood floor which was lightly refinished. The ceiling was dropped to allow new lighting, wifi and ceiling fans, and was surfaced with prefinished wood flooring. A bar, complete with a solid wood top, was created at one end of the space and surrounded by handmade walnut stools created by a faculty member. A variety of seating/study options were created inside the space with elevated booths, a community table, lounge area and 4-top tables.

Historic photos and powerful quotes that are important to the members of the Wabash community were transformed into digital wall coverings by our experiential graphics team. These murals surround the space, working with the design to provide an environment that truly embraces the foundation and traditions of Wabash College.
