Community Center, Carolina Meadows Retirement Community

Renovation and expansion of the Community Center Dining

Prior to the redesign, The Carolina Meadows Community Center was home to the one dining venue for Independent Living, and the kitchen that served the entire community. The client’s goals included designing needed updates for the future, and a dining environment that would do justice to the chef’s who prepared the meals. The Community Center now has a Marketplace Cafe and Pub for casual dining, Courtyard Dining for more elegant fare, and a Bakery/Coffee Shop. All served by a repositioned Central Kitchen. Tipton Associates was responsible for all aspects of the building interiors, and food service design of the multi-phased project. Attention to details ensured that dining would continue for all residents throughout the construction.
