The Mitchell Institute is a non-profit organization founded by former U.S. Senator George J. Mitchell whose mission is to increase the likelihood that young people from every community in Maine will aspire to, pursue, and achieve a college education. The Institute desired a multi-purpose space that could host educational sessions for students, fundraising events for volunteers and donors, and also serve as a workspace for the hard-working staff. The result is a light-filled space that is easily reconfigured for varied uses and allows people to do their best work to support Maine students.
