The Library at Art Building West, University of Iowa
Client: University of Iowa
Architect: Steven Holl Architects
Milder Office furnished the study spaces in the much lauded School of Art & Art History Library designed by Steven Holl Architects. Reading rooms offer Milder Library Tables with overhead spot lighting, while private study areas are furnished with the Milder Library Carrels complete with lockable storage for students ‘camping out’ for much of the day. Carrel options include lighting, storage, and power and data ports. The height of the (three sided) partition can be modified to increase or decrease sight lines. The units can be used to partition the open space plan.
Milder Office also provided side tables for the lounge area that overlooks the surrounding pond and forest.
LITTLE Office (NC)
Architect: LITTLE Architecture
LITTLE is an architectural firm that came to Milder Office to overhaul their 10,000SF offices in Durham, NC, they had a good sense of what it is they wanted. Our furniture system allowed the client to tailor products to their specific needs while maintaining a cohesive aesthetic throughout.
Clients have specialized needs, LITTLE wanted oversized desktops that could support the way they worked and could accommodate architectural plans. Milder also furnished conference rooms, private offices, lounge, as well as a custom kitchen and storage options throughout. A clever mix of pre-finished plywood colors were specified throughout the space to great effect.
The AIA Orlando Chapter awarded a Merit Award to the LITTLE Durham office. The jury commended the project’s successful interiors reuse project for being “restraint with a minimalist approach and strong interior furniture elements”.
