Babson College, The Commons at Horn Library
Finegold Alexander was invited to design a new 10,000-square-foot addition called ‘The Commons at Horn Library’. The addition will mark a dramatic new entry for the library and will be a new home for the Cutler Center - Babson’s trading room. In addition, the ground floor will have a cafe with open seating areas at 2 levels. The second floor will feature two quiet group study spaces, a full classroom, and a balcony with seating that overlooks the seating areas below. The design is evolving and will be well integrated with the existing building. Interiors will be contemporary and will reflect the Babson brand with warm, sophisticated furnishings, finishes, and lighting. A generous use of glass will provide natural light throughout.
