Swiftspace Swift Spaces: Sheridan College
Sheridan College has been called the “Harvard of animation”, and its graduates regularly go on to work at Pixar, Dreamworks, and other high profile studios. With so many creative minds coming out of Sheridan, what do designers choose to put into it?
When Sheridan designed their new Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga, they decided to use nine Swiftspace Rendezvous meeting booths to inspire their students to collaborate. Bold colour combinations and bright finishes create an inviting atmosphere for students to hang out and interact.
Students say the booths are a hit: they make a great touchdown spot for quick meetings, and the high walls allow more speech privacy than a table and chairs could. The booths by the elevators are particularly popular, as students pause there between classes.
The college appreciates the consistent look afforded by the permanency of the fixed-style benching. Because the benches are single units that can lock together, the familiar problem of chairs migrating from room to room is solved. After over half a year of heavy traffic, these Rendezvous are still as bold and beautiful as the day they rolled them into place.
A big thank you to Sheridan College for choosing Swiftspace to show off your creative side.
