Corbett-Parmelee Dining Center and Lobby Renovation

This project renovated the Corbett and Parmelee Dining Centers into a single food-hall-inspired dining center called The Foundry, with eight distinct micro-restaurants. The Corbett Lobby was also restored to its original large welcoming area and lounge design, providing a space for students to study and socialize. The design revolved around providing a modern gathering space and bringing a healthy variety of food options to students while giving a nod to the university’s roots as an agricultural school through the food options and the ties to nature.
