Canteen Johannes Gutenberg University

The new construction of the old canteen at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz is based on the idea of creating a room that appears flexible and nearly improvised. The large space is divided and structured through individual rooms separated by curtains. For large events, these room dividers can be raised to create a continuously usable area. The original food line will be maintained in its function and enhanced by promotion stands in the guest area.
