Ray W. Huegel Elementary School
Huegel Elementary’s library features a uniquely circular shape and needed to have areas for independent reading, collaborative work, large-group and small-group instruction, storage areas, inviting book browsing and space for student creation. By replacing a large, outdated circulation desk and installing light-colored ColorScape® shelving and book browsing bins, designers invited in light and created a calming atmosphere. A mobile makerspace, instructional tables, chairs and soft seating completed the library’s new multifunctional, flexible space.
