Gordon Commons at Vassar College is a stunning all white and stainless dining hall with a modern dining experience. This dining hall contains a main kitchen with two full cooklines, a servery kitchen, kosher kitchen, and three satellite cooking areas. This equates to nine kitchen exhaust hoods on a common fan, and four additional satellite hoods on three additional exhaust fans. The uniqueness of this design is that all thirteen hoods share a common makeup air unit.
Our team was tasked to create a custom DCKV solution for their dining hall, keeping the sharpness of its modern aesthetic while facing challenges with layout and lofted ceilings.
