Dining Hall


Boston / 2017

     Hall offers a membership-based dining hall on Newbury Street in Boston. To serve its members dinner and offer space for socializing and co-working, Hall moved from a weekly pop-up in the founder's apartment to open its first permenant location.

    I worked directly for the client to identify a site, develop a design strategy integrated with the growing business model, and prepare a schematic design for renovating a gutted penthouse office space. The new space includes a fully licensed commercial kitchen, two handicap accessible bathrooms, and a dish room. I also helped hire an interior architecture firm to hand off the design for Design Development through Construction Administration.
