United Nations Consolidation Building

New York

Since 2011, HOPKINS has been working on and off with Pritzker Prize winner Maki and Associates and FXFowle Architects to provide the United Nations with planning options. Maki’s design incorporates a dramatic setback with a green roof that contributes to the ambiance of the dining room with its stunning views of Manhattan and a roof garden. The Consolidation Building is to achieve LEED Gold certification.

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.

The New York Times Headquarters - Planning

The New York Times. Construction of the newspaper company’s latest home meant that, in place of the antiquated cafeteria and executive dining room, a new and improved foodservice system could be designed not only to serve as an exciting gathering place but also as an in-house conference center, which would save thousands of dollars in off-site event fees. During a three-month planning study, HOPKINS conducted extensive interviews in every department of the Times company to learn its culture and needs before we prepared the comprehensive predesign foodservice plan.
