Food service projects have their own unique set of challenges. Design goes beyond mere aesthetics. From coordinating kitchen equipment to selecting materials that will withstand heat and wet conditions, their design complexities ultimately result in creating a public space for comfortable dining experience.
The University of Tampa’s Vaughn Center is a 9-story building on campus with 28 food venues to meet the demand of both students and faculty, and at the heart of it is its cafeteria. The 10,000-square-foot renovation in 2012 consisted of revamping the existing cafeteria.
The design proposal for the University of South Florida-Saint Petersburg‘s dining spot “The Reef” was meant to embody its ocean theme: fluid and calming. Part of this existing food serving area was to be converted to a convenience store, with the rest upgraded to enhance the look and feel of the new space.
