Built with ZGF on a hilltop overlooking the Bosporus, the new embassy is surrounded by a landscape planted with plenty of figs and grapes. No one goes hungry on this hill.
A new staff café within walking distance of a plethora of foodie options for employees of Discovery Communications’ world headquarters gives them a home of their own.

Mission accomplished.
After the Bank purchased a building near its landmark KPF-designed headquarters, the Studios architectural firm hired HOPKINS to insert a full-service cafeteria on a particularly short floor.

The client was delighted.
