The design preserves the integrity of Trumbauer’s 1920s design, which is renovated to its original state. As well as restoring the gravitas of the esteemed historic structure, the building provides a frame for the new atrium, which replaces the existing core. Fully modernized, the lofty, day-lit hall includes a variety of dining venues that allow faculty students, staff, and alumni to meet for planned or impromptu interactions. This informality and openness fosters increased interaction and connections between students, developing a greater sense of community within Duke University itself.

As well as recognizing the benefits of shared meetings, the university body acknowledges the importance of a healthy lifestyle. This holistic approach extends to the quality of food offered at the Student Union, which include predominantly organic meals. By facilitating greater student collaborations and encouraging healthy eating, the project transforms West Campus into a thriving educational hub.
