Welcome to mediaspace

We’ve been doing “Library” for quite a long time. We like to think that we’ve learned a thing or two along the way. Our mediaspace Approach is the culmination of the years of experience and expertise. We offer you this unique approach to help create a space that will be beautiful, functional and relevant for decades to come.

With mediatechnologies furniture, we can guarantee it.

One size does not fit all in the media space

media spaces are not a one size fits all... and the pieces of one shouldn't be either!
That's why mediatechnologies offers many pieces to the puzzle!

Just to name a few:

  • Centuries of library experience
  • 2D/3D space planning
  • Custom product design
  • Product consultation
  • 3D rendering
  • CET
  • CAD
  • ReVit
  • Unlimited finish selections... (virtually)
  • Colorboaring

  • We stay current with the trends and continue to move forward.

First...

Scheme & Tone

Zones, Function, Support
Scheme and Tone are determined by Zones, Functions and design.

“Scheme” has everything to do with the layout, function and flow of the overall space.

  • Primary Zones
  • Function
  • Seating Capacity
  • Collection Size





The "Tone" of your space is conveyed through the design of the furniture you choose and through the material selection for that furniture.

  • Existing space to match
  • New build
  • Traditional
  • Progressive



Zones & Functions

mediaspace is a flexible and adaptable approach to the "library" in both it's form and function and allows the planner to consider the entire media space as an arrangement of Zones and Functions. Each media space has a unique "scheme" and by appointing it with Functions we can enhance and support the spaces assigned function with different types of furniture.

Support & Kits

At mediatechnologies we offer a wide selection of furniture to support the functions of your media space. Our kit selections are based upon an anchor product that serves as a specific function/ned/desire for your space and the orbiting products can be changed up with product selection and finish materials to set the "tone" of your space and stay on budget!
