Southern Maine Community College Brunswick Learning Commons
SMRT helped Southern Maine Community College (SMCC) transform a former Navy base into a forward-looking academic campus.
The learning commons is the centerpiece of SMCC’s expanding Midcoast campus.
An indoor campus quad, the commons includes a café, library, bookstore, private study rooms, and classrooms, and accommodates academic and campus events. A tidal pool/ocean concept – centered around the red “buoy” printing kiosk – guided the interior design.
The space creates a central core for the campus, allowing students to convene in both formal and informal meeting spaces.
