Williams Dining Hall was in competition with a brand new student dining center on campus. In order to compete with the shiny new dining center, Williams Dining Hall needed to different and exiting. North Carolina A&T requested the space be warm and casual to evoke a sense of community yet upscale and contemporary to keep up with the newer space on campus.

Warm & Contemporary

Neutral tones of upholstery and wood grains fit the desire for warm and casual. Floor to ceiling glass windows surround the perimeter of the dining hall. Warm wood finishes and laminates accentuate the outdoor scenery and allow plenty natural lighting. Interesting table laminates, upholstery patterns, and furniture pieces selected added an upscale contemporary feel to the dining hall. Wicker Park bar height and standard height were used along the glass wall to increase seat count without blocking the view.

Community
Different seating nooks and zones create different senses of community throughout the space. Free standing tables can be grouped together or separated to host different group sizes as can the lounge furniture. Community tables in varying lengths are equipped to host an entire team.  Cluster booth seating and soft seating areas invite group conversation.  Smaller intimate booth seating, soft seating, and two person tables accommodate smaller groups, study buddies, and couples.
