Immaculata University – Gabriele Library
The newly constructed “ImmacuLatte Cafe” features freshly brewed espressos, lattes, and other coffee, tea and fruit beverages as well as soups and sandwiches. The cozy cyber-cafe seating area is equipped with Wi-Fi for high speed computer connectivity, and the contemporary decor features richly adorned glass mosaic tile and cherry hardwood floors.
Immaculata University wanted the new cafe to offer more relaxed, student-centered learning spaces, while still having it feel like a natural extension of Gabriele Library. To accomplish this, the design team ensured that finishes matched the cherry wood of the existing library, with complementary mosaic glass accents, and added a mocha-colored panorama of the University domes to one wall.
Also included in the final product is a casual cyber café sitting area which can accommodate small group interactions or individual study; as well as two public restrooms for added convenience.
