South Seattle College

Alki Cafe:  Renovations 

South Seattle College (SSC) requested our expertise to renovate Alki Cafe, an existing campus dining room, into a grab-and-go coffee shop lounge style space. The design team evaluated the existing space and the adjacent instructional kitchen, providing recommendations that focused on creating more convenience to students and faculty alike. The cafe, which is located in the student union building, is part of the college’s culinary arts program and is run by students. 

Located on an 87-acre hilltop campus in West Seattle, SSC was founded in 1970 and is 1 of 3 community colleges that make up the Seattle Colleges District.
