The West Village Dining Commons is a highly flexible, 50,000 SF dining, lounge and educational facility that seats over 600 students and includes over 10,000 SF of multi-use academic space. The program includes seven food venues, back of house kitchens, four classrooms, faculty and staff offices, two large meeting rooms, and ample dining and study rooms.
Flexible open seating was used for student lounge and study areas both inside and outside creating a vibrant, hybrid, multi-purpose gathering place. In addition to connecting a very complicated and steep site, this project’s unique challenges included the desire to draw the Georgia Tech community to the underutilized West Campus where students, faculty, and visitors, can better connect to each other and rejuvenate on campus. Situated at the headwaters of the campus Eco-Commons, landscape integration reinforces the sustainable culture and relationship of this project to the campus.
