Phase Zero Design

UConn Co-Op Storrs Center

This branch of the Uconn Co-op was designed to have the atmosphere of a small town bookstore while still maintainng a connection to the university. Poetry slams, book release events, book readings, live jazz bands, and many other community based events are planned to be held in the space. The tenant space is mixed use, divided into a full service bookstore, a small cafe, the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry (BMP) offices and galleries, a state of the art black box theatre and shared common support areas. The bookstore itself is 8,800 square feet.
