AIA Pittsburgh Design Award

Chatham Anderson Dining Hall

Certificate of Merit

Chatham University’s campus dining is a center for socialization and nutritional sustenance, supporting the mental and physical health of the University community. Anderson Hall was an outdated facility of dark and separated rooms. The transformation creates a connected, uplifting, and environmentally expressive experience inspired and aligned with the University’s arboretum campus.

The jury commented:

  • Chatham Dining Hall is effectively transformed by the introduction of a faux skylight. The impact of this one element is astounding and its contrast with the wooden ceiling and raw steel columns generates an elegant composition.
