Newark, Ohio The Warner Student Center & Library fills multiple needs on the joint campuses of Central Ohio Technical College and Ohio State University, Newark. The 86,000 square foot Center includes student organization offices, bookstore, meeting rooms, math & writing training labs, counseling offices, safety & security offices, and dining facilities for 500. The library portion of the building incorporates a “Fireside Lounge” where students can quietly study in a home-like atmosphere.
The building's subtle curve emphasizes an “open arms” feel toward the campus. The sophisticated, yet warm, interior is enhanced through the extensive use of glass, taking advantage of natural lighting and passive solar opportunities.
