Dining Hall & Student Center, Delaware County Christian School

Newtown Square, Pennsylvania

W.S. Cumby recently completed this transformative renovation project at Delaware County Christian School. This project involved the conversion of the old, underutilized gymnasium into a new dining hall and lounge space.

Delaware County Christian School is a Pre-K-12 independent coeducational day school with an enrollment of 700 students, situated on an historic estate in Newtown Square, PA.

The project scope included the adaptive re-use of the Middle School gymnasium to create a new 300-seat dining hall with servery, commercial kitchen, bathrooms and fitness center.

A new upper level mezzanine area was added overlooking the dining area – the space features soft seating and areas for casual group gatherings with game tables and a fireplace.

The rear wall was opened up to add four sets of two-story windows to bring in natural light and provide views of the sports fields and campus greenery.
