Spacious Dining
The primary objective of
Hoover Hall was to replace
the inadequate former dining
hall and provide spacious
dining spaces for faculty and
staff, as well as classrooms,
while integrating with the
Georgian character of the
university's historic campus
and opening up a new view.
As a major campus
gathering point, it was
essential that Hoover Hall
accommodate student dining
at a range of scales and
project a sense of welcome
to the campus in its detailing
and facades, explains Stern
Architects' Christopher Farrell.

Hoover Hall's formal
entrance at its east facade
welcomes the campus with
a columned portico topped
by a curved pediment, while
two secondary entrances
at the west facade offer
access from a major
pedestrian thoroughfare,
accommodating students
arriving from different points
on campus. A classicallydetailed copper-roofed
white cupola marks the
entrance to the building
and is lit at night, acting as
a beacon that announces
the public nature of the
building and contributes to
the processional campus
landscape that Hoover Hall
helps to create.

Mock Woodworking is home
to craftsmanship in the digital
age. We bring the best old world
craftsmanship brought to life by
the newest tooling, equipment, and
efficiencies.
- Doug Mock, Owner

Inside, a double-height
entryway gives way to a
vaulted sky-lit servery through
a series of arched openings.
Beyond the servery, a pair of
short connecting halls lead
students into the main dining
room, where broad archways
divide the room in three
sections: a large doubleheight area in the center is
flanked by two secondary
areas with lower ceilings,
providing two different scales
for dining and preventing
the height of the room from
overwhelming users.

A large fireplace
surrounded by black and
gold marble-the school's
colors-anchors the hall,
which contains a variety of
seating styles that allow for
varying group sizes at meals.
A mezzanine above offers
additional seating-including
banquets-and a view over
the hall. Tables and chairs
for the dining hall were
manufactured by Thomas
Moser. Three wide bay
windows allow light to flood
in and match the scale of the
double-height room.
