What We Did

The Lane Community Technology Center offers a high-tech, collaborative, work/play/create space with public computers, high-end software, a VR headset, 3D printers, a Glowforge laser cutter, and Wi-Fi throughout.

In 2013, CDA transformed a windowless space in the historic Robinson Schwenn Building into a welcoming new Community Technology Center through the use of innovative lighting exposed ceilings, suspended acoustic panels, colors and finishes, flexible furniture (LDA) and vibrant local artwork. The space included computer and production labs, community conference room and lounge area.

Due to the success of this original branch, in 2020, CDA designed a new and expanded Tech Center right around the corner in the Journal News building. Faced with challenging ADA access requirements, a ramp and new entry were designed. Several interior elements, including the calm and soothing color scheme from the previous space, were reused, and new furniture, acoustic ceiling treatment and a Maker Center were added to the refreshed design. The expanded Tech Center has floor to ceiling glass partitions providing privacy with supervision and access to windows deep into the space, a modified and relocated Help Desk, teen space, break areas for staff, access to computers and work areas for all types of projects. The custom exterior signage was able to be reused and identifies the new entry.
