Academy of the Holy Angels Media Center Renovations
Di Cara | Rubino Architects designed a multi-phase media center renovation at the Academy of the Holy Angels in Demarest, NJ. The 5,000 SF overhaul project included a gut renovation, removal of partition walls and bookcases, replacement of windows, ceiling, lights, and a new adjacent computer room.
The Learning Commons has become an oasis for quiet study, collaboration, creativity, and aca-demic exploration. This innovative space is used by all Holy Angels constituents for presentations, meetings, workshops, and social gatherings. Students and faculty have access to 49 research databases 24/7, on campus and remotely. The technological capabilities of the Learning Commons help to promote global citizenship.
During the school day, students skim reference books, research online databases or browse print books or e-books, do homework, work collaboratively on class projects, read or study independently, or engage in help sessions to better develop the skills and strategies to efficiently and independently locate quality, relevant and timely information.
