Mount Mary University Mother’s Room

Wauwatosa, WI

This project was truly a community effort. It began with the Director of the Dietetics department identifying the need. I was asked to transform a former conference room into a space that could accommodate both nursing and pumping moms. Taking into account the high female population of Mt Mary’s students and staff I created a flexible space to accommodate up to 3 moms at a time. The space is adjacent to a restroom and art from the on site day care students was added for some whimsy. The flooring and wall colors were re-purposed from the original space and the furniture was bought through the generosity of alums that saw the value in supporting the students goals.
