TRANSFORMED UNDERUTILIZED SPACE WITH Outdoor Furniture
We worked with the University of Wisconsin-Madison to help them address an underutilized space on their campus. The outdoor area of UW’s Union South serves as a multi-purpose gathering space for students, faculty, and the community. The current space lacked adequate seating and was not comfortable for longer events.
After a campus visit to survey the space and learn more about how students and the University use the outdoor area, and hearing more about their pain points and goals, our ideation team went to work in conceiving the best solution to address their needs.
Our design team put together a site plan that improved on the existing layout, withstood the Union’s high traffic demands, and transformed it into an inviting gathering space.
To enhance the comfort of the space, provide a gathering area for students, and increase the flexibility of the outdoor area, our design team incorporated high-top tables with bench seating, stools, and comfortable deep seating. The natural wood grain of the tables and chairs, along with the cushions and two-tone color combination matched Union South’s outdoor aesthetics.
Every brand has a different solution than the last, but don’t sweat it—our team will walk hand-in-hand with you to discover your sustainability pain points and how to overcome them.
