Vision 3 Architects created a bright and colorful new look in Elms College Dining Hall renovation. The design introduces natural light into the existing dining area by removing walls between the lobby and replacing them with a full height glass wall and a 2-sided fireplace.

The dining area incorporates several types of seating options, high/low tables and chairs, booths and soft seating areas and features a new ceiling layout with several decorative light fixtures. A new color palette for the floors, walls and ceilings create an enhanced visual affect. A café was created off the lobby, for students on-the-go. The dining room’s design elements were echoed in the redesign of the servery, game room and adjacent annex dining room.
