Mt Mary University, Nursing Mothers Room
Mt Mary University (College at the time the space was designed) is a womens university. This space supports the university's mission of supporting women and their goals. Due to a large female student body and visiting public three areas were set up to accomodate multiple mothers at any given time. Two areas are set up for mothers to pump at, and a rocking chair if the mother has her baby with her for comfortable nursing. This space was not done on a large budget as all funds came from donations. The existing carpet was used and the walls received a fresh coat of paint. The colors were not updated as they were a natural palette of muted blues and greens accented with dark wood tones to create a serene space. A bathroom is around the corner for convienent use of a sink and a refridgerator was not provided to avoid mix up of milk.
