The Student Dining Hall is essentially a solid box which has been scooped out in three places to create light wells. These light wells strategically filter the harsh sunlight and double up as landscaped areas. The light wells also transform the internal space dramatically creating a dynamism that is further accentuated by a random placement of circular columns.

The building has a stark feel on the outside broken with thin vertical concrete fins that act as the second layer of skin from the inside. While the thin horizontal ribbon windows frame views of the hostel courtyard when one is dining, the primary experience of the space is introverted.
