The design for the Latitude Dining Commons at UC-Davis is inspired by the sun-drenched agricultural heart of California. This is reflected in clear, functional design that utilizes exposed structure, pitched roofs, and large expanses of glass to allow views to street, garden and patio, and connect interior and exterior campus activity. The Dining Commons is a unique building, designed to be filled with light during the day, and intimate and warm after dark.
