Nicolet Technical College Learning Resources Center

Rhinelander, WI

Nicolet Technical College wanted to create a space that was timeless for the remodel of the Lakeside Center Learning Resource Center located in the beautiful northwoods of Rhinelander.

Our team worked closely with them to provide furniture pieces that were modular, flexible, and classic, while complimenting the scenic lake view and years of grown trees surrounding their campus.  The goal was to provide quality affordable options to amplify the space and add character with a classic look. The library area on the third floor required a unique request leading our designers to channel their creativity in finding a cost-effective solution that wouldn’t sacrifice a sleek, finished look for shelving in their Mezzanine Library - the solution was to use shelving consisting of metal casing on the inside (to keep costs low) and adhering finished tops to achieve a high-end look.

This project covered three floors and our furniture solutions team provided design services and product for the following areas:

  • Café with soft seating and tables, condiment storage cart, and mobile coat rack
