Junior Common Room
In the book, A Pattern Language, author Christopher Alexander and his colleagues say, "There is a need in people to live with a secret place in their homes: a place that is used in special ways, and revealed only at very special moments." The junior common room is a "members-only" space for students and faculty to be used as a place to converse, play games, watch television or study and of course, enjoy special moments. It's all about family.
