The University of Rochester, Eastman School of Music, was seeking an upgrade of their existing dining facility located within the Gibbs Street Dormitory. The existing dining room was looking dated and worn and had not received an upgrade since the dorm was built in the early 90's.
SWBR was contacted to provide new finishes to include paint and new carpet, as well as all new furnishings. The existing terracotta colored tile was not able to be removed due to the high cost of doing so. We selected carpeting and paints that would complement the tile and not compete with the color. New laminate table tops were made locally here in Rochester and we reused existing table bases whenever possible. SWBR created a new café area with bar height tables and stools, and also provided new standard height seating to work with existing wooden benches.
