An Occupied Site
Built in the heart of an active campus.
The new dining hall includes a grand foyer, large windows offering views of campus and natural light, a well-equipped and energy efficient kitchen, a large meeting room, covered porch, and a large patio for meals and events. The building is strategically placed in the center of the campus, which required careful coordination during construction due to the constant flow of students nearby.
Serving Up Tradition
Designed and built with the history and location in mind.
The architectural design of the building is in keeping with Rabun Gap tradition, offering columns and brick that are found throughout campus. Its design was inspired by early dining halls on campus as well as the original school gymnasium. Incorporating local materials for the new dining hall was also an important aspect of the construction.
“The Richard and John Woodruff Dining Hall is a dream come true for our campus. It is such a blessing for our students, faculty, and their families to come together for meals in the new space.”
