James Madison University, Dining Hall
Design Team: Moseley Architects (Structural, Plumbing, Fire Protection, Mechanical, and Electrical), Tipton Associates (Food Service), Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (Civil), Shen Milsom & Wilke, Inc. (Audio Visual)
This state-of-the-art dining facility provides 2,213 total seats, including seating for exterior and indoor residential, retail and special events dining. It expands the dining capacity on the Bluestone Campus by nearly 1,000 seats. It offers a variety of food venues, and students can take advantage of fixed service platforms, transformation kitchen service platforms, national brands, hybrid retail dining, and a 200-seat special events venue. Outdoor dining spaces are available at the main and lower levels. In addition to dining spaces, the hall offers areas for collaboration and social interaction throughout.
The exterior architecture of the dining hall acknowledges the tradition of the Bluestone Campus as well as the university’s most recent campus master plan by incorporating bluestone walls with visible sloping terracotta roofs. Scaling devices, including colonnades and stone arches, create a pedestrian-friendly building and provide architectural details consistent with other historic buildings on the Bluestone Campus. The façade also features a clock tower that is contextually compatible to neighboring buildings and adds a historical element to the new construction.
