At Mount Wachusett Community College, a roof and just one new wall created a flexible space for commuting students to study, gather, and lounge.

PCA’s thoughtful and unexpected design brought new life to a windswept patio. Using bright colors and varying ceiling heights, the design breaks up the room into distinct zones that meet each student’s needs. MWCC now refers to this new 4,300 sf centralized space as the “living room” of campus.
