Regattas Dining Hall Expansion
Christopher Newport University,
Newport News, Virginia
GLAVÉ & HOLMES ARCHITECTURE studied, designed, and administered the construction contract for an expansion to the Regattas Dining Hall at Christopher Newport University. The expansion consists of 11,000 square feet of new building footprint and will accommodate 300 additional seats. The new facility includes a grand two-story space with a 2,800 sf mezzanine that is accessed by grand stairs that lead from the West of the first floor. The mezzanine space offers a café style feel, with soft seating and a decorative guardrail. The expansion also included additional rest rooms, new point of sale locations, a salad bar, additional drink and silverware stations, and the relocation of the existing Mongolian Grill. The relocation of the Grill allowed for the creation of semi-private dining areas.
