Note: 

The Riverview Health Centre (RHC) serves individuals with rehabilitation and long term care needs, and strives to create a welcoming, healing environment for its clients.  

Square Meal is an interactive dining space, in contrast to the more formal and rigid table settings that have become obsolete in many households. The design uses 96 sheets of 1/2” mdf, spaced 2” apart, to create an 8’ x 8’ cube. The cube is then carved into and out of to create different eating nooks, allowing occupants to dine however they choose, whether it’s lying down, standing up or somewhere in between.
