Widener University - Pride Café Dining Hall

Chester, Pennsylvania

Beacon Architectural Associates renovated the Pride’s Cafe Dining Hall at Widener University. This 14,500 sf project, constructed during the summer of 2011, included the total renovation of existing food service and dining areas. Specific design goals for this highly active campus location included the transformation of the facility into a more comfortable and elegant atmosphere for dining; an upgrade to service stations; and a variety of seating and food options – all accomplished within a layout that relieved congestion on both the employee and customer side of the counter. The design solution creates intimacy by carving out smaller spaces within a larger volume using soffiting and multiple ceiling heights. Conceptual planning through construction and close-out were completed by Beacon within a seven-month period.


Renovated sf: 14,500
