The Lewis and Clark College Fields Dining Hall project is the renovation of a 9,500 sf. dining facility. Originally constructed in 1956 and last remodeled in 1990, Fields required an update to meet the evolving needs of the student population.

Holst modified the existing entrance, previously hidden behind trees, into a identifiable and welcoming entry. An enlarged west window provides additional daylighting of the space.

A new serpentine wall separates the servery from the dining area and emphasizes the continuous flow of activity while juxtaposing the existing exposed structure. A new wood ceiling provides a sound baffle while accentuating the existing arched glulam beams.

Holst’s reorganization of the serving area meets the peak time demands of the student body and the food management organization, while providing the flexibility for future programmatic or operational changes.
