Austin Preparatory Dining Hall Reading, MA
SSV has been involved in projects at Austin Preparatory High School in Reading for several years. Ranging from conceptual designs for a new entry tower at the front of the school to executed renovations of its health and wellness center, the work has involved close collaboration with the school’s administration.
SSV was commissioned in 2017 to renovate Austin Prep’s dining hall and entry lobby. With dedicated space for a kitchen, servery, and pizza oven, the new dining hall serves not only as a place for eating, but also as a gathering place for the school. Close attention was paid to interior finishes, including wood trim in both spaces. The design process effectively involved a mix of two-dimensional drawing and three-dimensional modeling.
