Microsoft FY15 Café 34 Refresh | Redmond

The Café 34 Refresh was a complete departure from previous Refreshes; from a complete re-tooling of existing stations and menus, to the incorporation of a sit down restaurant with a three-course prix fixe menu. Adding to existing objectives of increasing variety, scratch cooking and improved atmosphere, was the concept of bringing the outside in and creating a panoramic view of the feature island below by extending the mezzanine. The island includes Global Street Food as its anchor station, which provides a mash-up of culinary treats from around the world. Hydroponic farming and a two-story Tillandsia art installation were several outside-in concepts incorporated into the design.
