With minimal natural daylight in the existing 80s stucco building, the cafeteria renovation provides a fresh new take on a student dining space. The addition of skylights, exterior glazing and natural wood transforms and opens the space to create a more welcoming student environment. The seating is zoned for different standout student activities including social dining, lounge dining and study dining to provide more varied settings within the unified whole. Working efficiently with the budget, Canary updated the furniture and finishes with a modern edge for added impact. To complete the renovation, environmental graphics and a student pin-up wall add vibrancy to the space and provide students with a sense of ownership.
