   JPMorgan Chase - Carlstadt, NJ



In support of its new state of the art Check Processing Facility, JP Morgan Chase required a full service cafeteria. In addition to its obvious function of preparing meals for the staff at all times of the day/night, it needed to be easily converted into a fully equipped "large scale" meeting facility. The room utilizes the LAN system located in the adjacent Board Room's LAN closet. By plugging in a laptop and flipping a few switches, projectors and screens drop from the ceiling, the window blinds close, allowing presentations, audio and or video conferences to take place. Delineation between the food prep, serving area and dining areas are accomplished through screening, floor finish patterns and cove ceiling accents. In contrast to the high tech working facility it supports, the cafe utilizes warm earth tones, creating a soothing break from the technical operations area.

   North Fork Bank - Manorville, NY



North Fork Bank recognized the old Grace’s Restaurant site on Route 111 as being a transition to the eastern locations of Long Island. Historically, this site has served as the last stop for food before the long drive east. North Fork invited Starbucks Coffee to open a Kiosk in the bank branch in order to expand serving the public as both a bank and Coffee shop. Architectural curves and angles are used to define specific areas of use. The serpentine tellers counter leads the customer through the space and serves to define the banking areas. Across from the teller counter, customers can pick up a steaming cup of the daily special coffee to enjoy while completing their banking transactions. The bank interior compliments the "Coffee House" colors Starbucks is known for, creating a uniformed space between the branch and the coffeehouse.

   The Carving Station - New York, NY



The Carving Station is a deli/restaurant, located in lower Manhattan. Main entrees and gourmet side dishes and salads are available for take out or to enjoy at small tables overlooking Church Street. The modest, nine hundred square foot project, consists of a small, concealed kitchen with wash, prep and cold storage units, while most of the cooking and final preparation occurs at the twenty five foot, visible, open counter area. The design of the counter integrates standard kitchen equipment pieces such as glass front refrigerators, drop-in hot and cold bins, cutting boards, coffee machines and service equipment storage areas. The atmosphere is centered on a country kitchen motif, with metropolitan design accents such as colorful lampshade pendants, granite counter tops and an unobtrusive sneeze guard. Considering the amount of restaurant equipment, serving/check out area and seating provided, the general design and food presentation is welcoming and appetizing for customers and very functional for the servers.
