This interiors project was created to help fulfill Harvard University’s initiative to invite graduate students into a full sense of academic community. JLA advised on program development, augmenting a simple food service facility with practical and social improvements. The project includes grocery pantry, convenience store, coffee bar and take-out food concepts to flexibly serve the widely variable needs of the graduate student population. The adjacent commons provides both hard and soft seating social/dining space. The result is a dynamic facility which forms a new hub of graduate social life and welcomes students living in a previously disconnected area of the campus.
