A Bright and Welcoming Space for Teens

Schaumburg Township Main Library wanted to provide its teen population with a technologically advanced, state-of-the-art area with built-in flexibility. The idea of a teen quad, where teens could relax, study, and socialize, resulted from brainstorming sessions with teen focus groups. The 6,370-square-foot interior renovation included several key features: a video production room, study area, program and discussion rooms, and a vending and social area.

The Schaumburg Library chose to install the Skyfold Mirage, the space division solution that doesn’t compromise the open concept design plan of the “teen” area of the library. On one side of the wall, they can play video games and watch movies; on the other, they can read, study, etc. They also have a ‘production area’ where the students can make movies and videos.

Its clean lines, lightweight structure, wide range of glass and plexiglass panels, high-efficiency acoustic seams, and ease of maintenance make Mirage the perfect solution for bright, sophisticated, and welcoming spaces.
