Shaw Air Force Base Dining Facility
Southern Division Naval Facilities Engineering Command
Sumter, South Carolina
This new dining facility accommodates 216 patrons in three separate seating areas and has a large exterior patio which can hold 60 patrons. The structure is organized around a two story serving/circulation spine which provides natural light deep into the facility by way of a clerestory, creating a more comfortable and welcoming area. The use of local split face masonry material, barrel vault configuration, and a light colored high immensity metal roof provides an architectural reference to context and heritage of the Air Force Base at Sumter, South Carolina.
