Renovation of the Offices of Housing and Conference Services and College Houses and Academic Services, two distinct departments within the University of Pennsylvania’s Stouffer Commons. As part of a four-year phased overall building renovation, CDA&I provided integrated architecture and interior design services, including in-depth programming, documentation of building infrastructure, and coordination of furniture and signage.
CDA&I managed to create a space so attractive as to nearly erase any visual traces of its original incarnation as a dining hall. The color and lighting that the architects chose gave the space an unanticipated openness, especially in the windowless basement area. Our staff has felt right at home here since moving in.Leslie DeLauter, Director CHAS University of Pennsylvania
