This new $25 million facility is the first of more than 20 State Department Bureau of Overseas Building Operations’ projects with HOPKINS that make use of various teams and an array of contracting methods. Built with ZGF on a hilltop overlooking the Bosporus, the new embassy is surrounded by a landscape planted with plenty of figs and grapes. No one goes hungry on this hill.
World Bank - Workplace
After the Bank purchased a building near its landmark KPF-designed headquarters, the Studios architectural firm hired HOPKINS to insert a full-service cafeteria on a particularly short floor. The new building’s cafe had to be at least as good as the one at headquarters. Challenge met! With extraordinary engineering skill, HOPKINS shoehorned the full-service cafeteria into the space. The client was delighted.
Because poor diet and obesity are causal factors for various forms of cancer and many other diseases, when the National Cancer Institute, was given an opportunity to plan its first in-house cafeteria, they took the project very seriously. HOPKINS was brought in to perform an extensive planning effort. NCI wanted to provide an environment in which visitors and staff could make optimal food choices, model behaviors that reduce risk for cancer and other diseases, and increase wellness. The healthy choice was to be the easy choice.
A new staff café within walking distance of a plethora of foodie options for employees of Discovery Communications’ world headquarters gives them a home of their own. DCI's goal in commissioning this project was to create an aesthetically pleasing cafeteria that reflects positively on the Discovery brand while satisfying their employees’ need for a place to grab a quick breakfast or lunch. Mission accomplished.
