Nebraska East Union, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Improving visual connectivity, transparency, daylighting, and discernible wayfinding were all key objectives to the success of this 104,000 sf renovation and addition of the Nebraska East Union. The most dramatic new feature is the redesigned central atrium, an organizing element that revitalizes the sense of community in the building.
A new main street circulation path with an added entry connects program spaces and amenities within the building while strengthening its integration into the campus fabric.
Special new features include an expanded pre-function lounge and ballroom for flexible event planning, a multi-venue dining marketplace, new retail components, a Starbucks café, as well as a fully renovated bowling center with new locker rooms.
