Temple University Pearson McGonigle Hall Renovation

Client Temple University
Location Philadelphia, PA
Scope 4,000 SF

Located in the lobby of the main student recreation facility on campus, this new retail facility is envisioned as Temple’s response to the Apple Store.

Designed to feature computer hardware and accessories across a range of manufacturers, this new store must facilitate visibility from the adjacent pedestrian traffic while also providing adequate display space for the merchandise. The facility can be run by a small cadre of employees, simultaneously assisting students, faculty, and staff with computer repairs, recycling, and purchases of refurbished systems in an adjacent facility. A new product storage mezzanine was built as part of this project, with a new freight lift allowing a convenient means of stocking and retrieving items for sale.
