Campus Dining

Boston University - Claflin Sleeper Dining

Boston, Massachusetts

The challenge of this project was to integrate the dining areas of two adjacent residence halls on Boston University’s West Campus to create a unified dining experience. Beacon’s design solution literally and visually connects the two, and includes an innovative dining space with an open-view “euro” kitchen so diners can see the chefs in action. Food and condiment stations are arranged to allow students a variety of choices such as fresh pizza and hot entrées cooked to order. The dining area is defined by elegant finishes, graphics, signage, and lighting to evoke the ambiance of a comfortable restaurant rather than a college cafeteria. Designed in association with Niemitz Design Group and ARAMARK Corporation.
