Madison College, Student Achievement Center, Truax Campus

Madison, WI

In an effort to make the Madison College Truax Campus more welcoming to students, visitors, and staff, PRA was assigned with designing a student achievement center.

PRA was engaged to create a new “front door” and community center for the Madison College Truax campus. The three-story building serves as a gathering and resource hub for the college. The first floor features a welcome center, concierge, security and open seating areas with a fire place. A grand staircase in the northwest corner also has collaboration space. The second floor primarily serves as the student achievement center and includes a lounge in the corridor, providing impromptu meeting spaces and an opportunity to overlook the first floor activities. The third floor is a library. The design includes two main streets to improve circulation and connect the existing 1,000,000 sq. ft. main campus to the new 93,000 sq. ft. gateway and future developments to the south.
