 This renovation and expansion restores a long-unused 1960 university dining hall to the core of campus life.

Oriented toward hilltop dormitories, the building turned its back toward the campus as it expanded into the

valley. By introducing a pedestrian spine, organized along a locally-quarried stone-clad wall, this LEED Gold

project reorients the existing building, creating a gateway linking upper and lower campuses. Dining is

arranged along the spine in syncopated spaces that encourage social engagement. An outdoor dining terrace,

an upper plaza and a stepped hillside respond to a campus culture that embraces the outdoors year-round.
