Harter Student Center

Baldwin City, KS

Baker University, Baldwin City, Kansas

Baker University recognized that their union, constructed in the 1950s, was struggling to meet the needs of today’s students. In a two-day charrette, we met with university employees, foodservice providers, and students to develop a vision for the future. The renovation provided students with study nooks, a variety of healthy dining options, and a thriving social space.

Project Details

In this Baldwin City, Kansas renovation, TESSERE converted the cafeteria line into six unique platforms, including a number of fresh and cooked-to-order options. Daylighting was used in the 330-seat center to take advantage of courtyard views, and a glass partition was installed to allow the grill to remain operational and accommodate students’ late-night schedules.
