MTC Student Cafe

Midlands Technical College

Completion Date

Project Budget

The need for more student centered lounging space resulted in this concept to convert the existing dining space on the Airport Campus into a “cyber cafe” lounge- a fun, technology oriented space that is student centered. A study of habits confirms vendor style accommodations are preferred over traditional cafeteria fare because of expediency and cost. This concept addresses these issues with furnishings that are comfortable, casual, and varied to meet the needs of diners, laptop users, and small study groups. The finishes are durable, and the layout is designed to create smaller nodes within the larger cafeteria shell. Ample technology infrastructure is provided to address the modern student’s needs.
