  • Project Details:

The University of Tennessee at Martin needed a new design for the Skyhawk Café as new food vendors, Sandella’s Flatbread and Chick-Fil-A Express, were moving into the space. The student dining spaces were renovated with modern accents, including a bright orange bulkhead above a coordinating curved bar for dining.

Hannah seating and Rylee tables by Izzy Furniture give the space a trendy, but casual atmosphere. Neofloor by Forbo, an extruded fiber vinyl tile product, was used in the dining area to absorb sound. Custom checkout counters were designed to fit around coolers for grab-and-go meals for students on the run.
