CSO was retained by Purdue University to design a new facility to house the Department of Hospitality and Tourism. The facility is a teaching facility as well as a publicly accessible student dining venue. Adjacent to academic halls, both “quintessential Purdue style” dark red brick and tile roof buildings, the design of the new Marriott Hall recalls this character, but provides a more open and inviting, transparent façade on State Street. The interior features a two-story dining space with a “Grille”, John Purdue Room and Coffee and Bakery Kiosk around the periphery. These spaces are supported by the Teaching Kitchen which functions as a lab as well as the main kitchen preparation area for the facility. The “Demonstration Hall” is a lecture room with a kitchen that will be used to teach cooking classes.
