Ithaca College, Terrace Dining Renovation


Ithaca, NY


22,000 sf

The 50-year old Terrace Dining Hall was renovated to enhance and energize the students’ dining experience. The previous dark and under-illuminated atmosphere was dated and worn, aggravated by the brutalist concrete structure.

  • QPK’s design added brightness, color and interest. Elements of the design included:

  • Metal laminate cladding for the two-story entrance ramp with vertical lighting strips.

  • Vibrant metallic colors for concrete column covers, feature walls and soffits.

  • Solid blue tiled floors and walls with matching ceiling emphasizing the dish-drop portal connecting the primary dining areas.

  • Decorative pendant and sconce lighting in the 2-story main dining room for brilliance and attraction.
