Metropolitan Community College Digital Express

Omaha, NE

This 69,000 s.f. first-floor addition provides a public and accessible technology, study, and collaboration space to the public and Metropolitan Community College students. The project scope includes a variety of spaces, including open study areas, conference rooms, creative zones, learning centers, family rooms, and classrooms. With the increase in virtual learning and interaction, the space allows the public to have access to technology. Additionally, the space offers personal support to students and families to connect and learn and is a safe place for visitors to use technology. The design team at Holland Basham Architects incorporated different ceiling elements and colors to separate each zone and space. The team applied their research and knowledge to ensure the space is welcoming and suits the needs of every visitor and user of the digital express.
