|Wheelock Whitney Hall, a library and training
center within the Minneapolis Community and Technical College,
provides a beautiful place to study and learn. A striking three-story-high
maple wall in the library atrium dominates the space. Here,
precise blueprint matching of wood grains provides a smooth,
rich look to the space.
Interior materials were selected to
coordinate and contrast with the existing building, with
wood as a key component of the palette. We chose maple to

ceiling grids, handrails and decorative laminate casework.
