UNC Lenoir Dining Hall Addition
Lenoir Dining Hall is located at the heart of UNC Chapel Hill’s campus. It neighbors The Pit, a highly active student gathering area, as well as several other prominent campus buildings. RND was awarded this exciting project which will increase the existing dining hall’s seating capacity.
Our team conducted extensive site investigations, surveys, and analyses to identify the most strategic location for the project addition. We then proposed several design schemes through sketches, diagrams, and renderings in combination with preliminary cost estimates to advance the project from schematic design to design development.
