Brookhaven Community College’s student union contained a cafeteria, which was underutilized due to its desperate need of updating. The school tasked the designers to create a “wow” factor, transforming the space into a mecca for performances, surfing the net, social gatherings and dining. IDG used the large round columns with new surrounding ceiling clouds to emulate trees. Bold floor graphics and curved banquettes with mesh curtains designed three distinct areas – the internet cafe and two pods of dining. Bold rich colors and exciting geometric forms welcomed the students into their new campus home.
