This project was awarded to XA Architecture Company following a national QBS process by which seven firms were short-listed and three firms selected for interview. The project was to demolish an outdated "arbor" structure and small food service building of about 600 SF located at the heart of the UCSB campus, and replace it with a new 4,000 sf facility. Due to our extensive experience at this campus and knowledge of food service facilities, restaurants and dining work, we were selected. The project incorporated the design of a 2,000 SF C-store, a 1,000 SF Subway sandwich shop, and a 600 SF Woodstock's take-out pizza space. Kitchen and storage areas were required also. An important aspect of the project was the pedestrian circulation issues, outdoor dining areas, and relaxation areas, to be incorporated in the plaza for the thousands of students using the facility on a daily basis.
