Tulane University School of Medicine worked with Mathes Brierre Architects to design a phased interior renovation of the 5th and 9th floors of the Murphy Building to offer students and professors more space for studying and focused work. Breakout areas leverage high-back lounge furniture, soft seating and felt desk screens at workstations to delineate space and provide acoustic support. Meetings rooms also give students and faculty additional space for group work and round-table discussions while the classrooms utilize flexible furniture that can be reconfigured for lectures and group activities. The private offices feature plenty of storage and guest seating for one-on-one conversations with students and co-workers. While the floorplan consists of many designated rooms, green and blue fabrics and upholstery carry Tulane’s branding throughout the design and offer material variety. Not only do the furniture solutions match the overall aesthetic and function, but they also provide an ideal platform for student and faculty collaboration and an exchange of ideas among the shared spaces, study areas and private offices.
