Ann Arbor, Michigan

For the new Kohn Pedersen Fox building, HOPKINS designed a small cafe in the atrium’s winter garden to serve students that commute in the evening as well as full-time students during the day. A colloquium kitchen supports events whether catered by the cafe operator or by commercial enterprises.

New York Academies of Science

The Academies sold its historic building to move into the World Trade Center 7, the first building to replace the fallen towers. The finishing kitchen was to support New York Academies events and be used by outside organizations as well, with the idea that the space could be rented as an income generator for the organization. The Academies asked HOPKINS to perform a City-wide RFP search for the ideal caterer. The two-month process involved multiple site visits, tastings and interviews and resulted in finding a fulltime operator, rather than a part time caterer. The chosen operator brought the advantage of being able to market the venue to outside groups as well.
