Construction Tour Follow-up

29 Jul Exterior-AFTER

In April the EPC toured the Johnson & Wales Centennial House construction site about half way to completion. The project, by Ed Wojcik Architect, is now complete! Below, check out before and after shots comparing the state of the project when we toured, to the finished product.

Finished commercial grade kitchen for student community meals


The project was a “semi-gut” renovation as explained by the Contractor. Some walls were kept, others were completely re-arranged. Dining room under construction


The communal dining room can be arranged into small table groups, or one large banquet-style set up.

Here, the final media lounge space with flexible seating options.


Upstairs there are single and double dorm rooms for the students to be part of this communal living house.


Bright yellow compliments the JWU blue doors for the dormitory color scheme.


The exterior of the Centennial House was repaired, and the landscaping was revitalized to bring life back to the street-scape near the Harbor Side Campus.
