Fayetteville, AR


Nerdies is a revolutionary start-up in Fayetteville that seeks to create an environment for kids and adults that is conducive to learning, playing, and gaming. At its core, Nerdies is a training and tutoring company that also accomodates lounging and gaming. As a renovation of an existing building, the design of Nerdies embodied this flexibility and spatial fluidity. A singular track of sliding plexi panels allows for spaces to open and close to one another as events and program dictate. The space maintains the raw industrial character of the existing building while embracing technology and progressive learning. The renovation includes a large space for lounging and cafe, dedicated classroom, and state-of-the-art gaming space. Service spaces include restrooms, server room, and office.
