VA Canteen

canteen at audie l. murphy memorial hospital 

The canteen is a 15,000 SF addition to the main hospital. The facility was designed to blend with the architectural aesthetic of the existing building and features brick and cast stone masonry. The canteen contains a 220-seat dining room, a 2,500 SF full-service production kitchen and server, and a 6,000 SF retail store. The cafeteria and retail store serve more than 1,000 customers daily. The structure was designed to accommodate a 15,000 SF second-floor addition. WestEast developed an extensive phasing plan for the construction to minimize disruption of ongoing operations at the hospital.
