Cafe Nova

Villanova commissioned BHA to renovate Café Nova located in the center of its campus. Challenged with food service, seating requirements and reusing the floor, a warmer restaurant atmosphere emerged from the earthen colors, natural stone, and woods used. Ductwork, structure and a previously hidden Hall of Fame were exposed. In addition, the food service areas were combined and separated from the dining area by four new sliding wood doors, thus creating an additional smaller café.
