This project is focused on creating a more inclusive, user-friendly, library workspace in conjunction with a product that specifically supports and increases work completed in a library. After observation, common areas or 'zones' were identified including: a socialization area, a creative recharge space, an idea stream room, an active collaboration area, a resource hub, a book room, and a solo work area. The solo work area presented intriguing challenges that prompted further research and became the focus of my product, Leaf. For me, it was essential to integrate elements of nature into this project because of its positive effects on mental health. Acting as a natural barrier in semi-private areas, live greenery stimulates focus, productivity, and creativity.
