The Edge at USF Perfectly Incorporates Antique Wood in a Contemporary Space

Goodwin company was proud to partner again with our good friend Beverly Frank of BFrank Studio in Tampa to help update the student commons at University of South Florida – St. Pete.  The Edge – formerly referred to as the Coquina Club – was built during the 1970s.  The original design was very boxy and institutional, and not very user friendly.

BFrank Studio updated this dated space into a modern and trendy student common area. They incorporated Goodwin’s River-Recovered® Heart Cypress in several ways throughout the site:
