Great Spaces: EVK Residential Dining, University of Southern California, Los Angeles
A bright open space and stations in separate areas make the EVK work.
Director of USC Hospitality Kris Klinger says he thinks the most stunning part of the space is simply the fact that the renovation added a lot of "great color and seating elements that create these micro areas with tall seating, soft seating, hard seating, etc., so the students have cool areas to hang out."
Klinger says people are most impressed by the change in look and feel of the space compared to what it used to be. "We opened up the ceiling to make the space brighter and more open. Plus, the bright red light fixtures stand out."
