The dining area features a high, classical barrel-vault ceiling. A balcony from the second floor juts into another double-volume space and provides the facility with natural light and a connection to the outdoors.
The high ceiling has acoustical metal panels formed into folded origami shapes that cascade through the space.
The hall anchors a development that will house 1,770 students when complete and supplements the amenities already offered to TCU students in the Brown-Lupton Union on the university’s main campus.
