Inside the new one million square foot Comcast Technology Center designed by Foster + Partners, DDI was responsible for creating a casual but dramatic food service experience. Located on the 27th and 28th floors, the two-story, 563-seat Café is easily accessible via the low, mid and high rise elevator banks. Designed as an aerial “marketplace” and central gathering space for Comcast’s vertical campus, the Café includes a collection of full and self-serve food stations and “neighborhoods” of seating areas, including the Sky Garden, offering views of the city to the north and the Comcast Center to the east.
Within the park-styled, two story Sky Garden, a suspended monumental stair connects the 27th and 28th floors. A Barista Coffee Bar and two full service display cooking kiosks offering rotating international and American Grill menus are organized around the dramatic triple height space. Adjacent private dining rooms with aluminum and glass storefronts provide spaces for smaller groups or meetings while still allowing transparency for unobstructed skyline views.
