Throughout the design process, the design team needed to be mindful of the community’s affection for this building and respectful of its legacy to the neighborhood.
The Lenore Croudy Family Life Center is the space where students can find their community on campus. Connected to the Early Childhood Learning Center it provides the college with much needed resources for working parents, low income families and students with other special hardships and needs. Through the use of open and flexible planning concepts the renovation will create interactive spaces that allow students and their families to interact with each other and with the building resources in meaningful ways. The open space design incorporates resources in highly visible and highly accessible ways to encourage their use and promote their impact on the students coming to this center. The design intends to support Mott’s programs to provide opportunities to more students to succeed in pursuing their college dreams.
