Villanova University, Dougherty Dining Hall

The renovation of Dougherty Hall, which serves as the main dining hall seating 620 students, was a fast-tracked project on a tight budget. The space was opened and enlarged, finishes were upgraded to add warmth and character to the space and included covering exposed concrete beams with rich cherry wood trim. Tiled walls were updated with new tile and wood panels. New ceiling tiles and decorative lighting, connected to a daylight harvesting system, completes the look.
