Our WorkSUNY Campus Center

SUNY IT by Architectural Resources

Design Brief

Project Location: Buffalo, NY

The transformation of the SUNY IT Campus Center Dining Facility provides a stimulating dining environment that promotes social interaction. The previously compartmentalized lobby, kitchen, servery and dining areas are now visually connected and abundant daylight fills each space. The campus community can now dine, engage with the chefs and experience the making of food. The highly efficient design of spaces meets program needs, increased occupancy from 350 to 600, and provides animated spaces with unified layers of very thoughtful interior finishes and furniture. Complementing the enhancement of the Campus Center architecture, a two-story addition provides a new home for mechanical systems. Moving the HVAC equipment, previously residing in a mezzanine above the student dining room, eliminates the constant noise from motors and rattling ductwork which fosters an environment conducive to conversation.
