The Corporate Executive Board is an association of the highest executives of Fortune 500 companies who meet in Washington, DC several times a year to discuss their issues and earn from each other. In the Foggy Bottom home for many years, Susan Cage was the caterer of choice who brought the kind of high-end gourmet meals that their illustrious members were accustomed to. When they decided to make the move to an I.M. Pei designed building in Roslyn, Virginia the CEB included a staff cafeteria, designed by HOPKINS with Gensler. Towards the end of the design process, CEB asked HOPKINS directly to lead the process of identifying a high-end operator which could manage both the in-house cafeteria and the member events.
St. Elizabeth’s Hospital
This once-crumbling, historic psychiatric facility was replaced by a $78 million, state-of-the-art hospital for which HOPKINS designed a 12,000 square foot central food preparation kitchen and retherm kitchens for each residential unit. Now patients can have breakfast and dinner in their “homes” and lunch “at work” in the treatment mall.
The Beyer Blinder Belle addition of a new penthouse floor, along with a complete gut-renovation of the Building E-52 conference center, will increase the number of events the building can host and the corresponding revenues gained. HOPKINS’ scope included renovation of a large production kitchen and a remote full-service bake shop, to which we added a third finishing kitchen on the penthouse level and catering pantries near all conference rooms.
The National Museum of African American History & Culture, the latest addition to the Smithsonian Institution. Philip Freelon and David Adjaye, winners of the international competition to design this new museum on the National Mall, have ensured that first-rate dining can be part of the visitor’s experience within their eye-catching edifice.
