From the 2023 Educational Interiors Showcase: Seton High School Cafeteria Renovation

Oct. 18, 2023
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Cafeterias/Food-Service Areas category.

The cafeteria renovation at Seton High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, provided an opportunity to capture, create and redefine the school’s identity. The space’s design evokes a sense of pride in the student, faculty and administration. Halo Cafe, as it was renamed, is no longer just a “cafeteria” but now plays host to various activities. Students will be able to use the space to dine, socialize and participate in group study sessions. The design takes its cues from postsecondary institutions—wood paneling in the ceiling and its contemporary seating options. This environment will set expectations for students’ future academic experiences and will be a departure from the dining experience normally found in high schools.
