North Carolina State University
Talley Student Center
MHTN was selected by North Carolina State University as student union programmer and student life planner for this $82 million remodel/addition of the Talley Student Center. This project will add approximately 125,000 square feet to the existing 150,000 square foot building, adding more food options, relocating the north campus bookstore and providing more space for student programs on the NCSU campus. MHTN Architects is teamed with Duda Paine Architects of Durham, NC and Cooper Cary Architects of Atlanta, GA on the project. The vision for the project commits to the tenets of identity, placemaking, sustainability, connectivity, and functionality. Its design will create a variety of dining, study, and social environments for students, staff, and faculty as well as maximize ballroom and event functions. A light-filled atrium, connecting 4 levels, is conceived of as a town square at the center of the project. It will serve literally as the crossroads of campus life that connects North Campus and Central Campus. A two-level hub of student-based programs will crown the top of the atrium with active and highly visible collaborative spaces.
