Macalester College Student Lounge
Macalester College desired more gathering and social space for its students and teamed with Pope Architects to design a new student lounge, The Loch.
The lounge includes a food bar, performance stage with seating for 200, enclosed room with TVs and video game consoles, and study alcoves
"We need a space for hanging, socializing, group projects, eating, watching TV, and relaxing — an open and bright space that students want to spend some time in."
