VCU Health Systems identified an under-used open-air exterior patio on the 5th floor of the VCU/MCV main hospital. It was the ideal location for a new, approximately 4,000 SF physician/faculty dining room and lounge. The space is conceived as a multipurpose room with one large event space, subdivided into 3 distinct smaller spaces. Movable partitions create space for medical executive board meetings, dining areas, breakfast/lunch serving areas, and informal meeting spaces for medical and academic colleagues. The new space features generous day-lighting controlled by motorized window shades, concealed AV equipment, as well as durable furniture/finishes that are warm and modern.
