St Columbas College
Our brief was to transform the ‘canteen-feel’ of the dining hall to increase uptake amongst pupils. We designed a contemporary, colourful, ‘grown up’ space. A mix of shapes, colours and bespoke feature lighting create a more exciting dining experience. The layout of the space and design of the servery were key to improving flows and reducing congestion.
Our goal was to enhance the dining experience for our pupils and staff and we now have a vibrant space with improved flows and new counters that showcase our food. Our dining hall has become the heart of the school. Not only has it enhanced the eating experience for our boys; in doing so, the investment is helping us to meet our long-term commercial objectives, and that’s important too.
