Synopsis:

 

Located amongst a collegiate urban fabric the Northside Dining Terrace was designed to facilitate a pedestrian link for a community of students as well as providing a welcome change from the typical college dining experience, establishing a more intimate and less institutional setting.

 

The Dining Terrace is a 7,000 SF addition to the existing Kelly Hall dormitory on the campus of Drexel University.  The building broke ground in May 2009 and was opened to students by the start of the 2010 spring semester.

 

The Dining Terrace seats approximately 140 students inside with some added seating outside on the terrace and out on the steps.  This building takes advantage of the Green Globes sustainable design initiative to create a building which is energy and resource efficient, giving an operational savings and a space which is healthier to occupy.
