Shriver Center Bookstore

Client Miami University
Oxford, Ohio

Miami University needed a fresh, new look for the bookstore to attract more students and local customers as well as to better reflect the upscale image of the University.


The store is on two levels in the existing student center building. A new, inviting interior entry element was created on the upper level to provide a fresh appeal for the space. This level has a department store feel, combining several thousand square feet of clothing sales area with a Clinique cosmetics counter, unique Miami spirit items, and a lounge area. The lower level houses an Apple store, and sales of art supplies, school supplies, and textbooks. To overcome the challenges of having the store on two floors, a new open stairway with wood rails and glass panel creates a feature element to connect both levels completing the transformation of the bookstore into a high class retail store for Miami University.
