A dynamic, colourful and intriguing environment was just what the Campus St. Jean cafe and student lounge needed. The use of angles and the interplay of colours and materials created an interesting twist on the standard cafe service line.

The character of the cafe is one that will allow for people of all ages, both students and nearby residents, to enjoy a freshly made meal or a cup of coffee and a good book.

A sharp and modern look was the design for the Centennial Center for Interdisciplinary Sciences (CCIS). Because of this and the relatively neutral colour scheme, it was determined the furniture could pick up the bold colours the space needed.

Through saturated colours and bold patterns, the common area furniture is sure to draw the eye of all passerbys. Clean lines and a modern design were used to complement the buildings intended aesthetic.
