Project Description

We completely overhauled this outdated restaurant on the UC Berkeley campus. The 2,500 sq ft space consists of a foodservice kitchen area, seating and Peet’s Coffee service bar. We introduced new design elements such as a seating area that evokes a skate board ramp and all new benches along the three sides of window wall. We used reclaimed wood on the ceiling and environmentally friendly linoleum flooring in the dining area. Interior improvements included lighting design, a digital TV menu, upgraded flooring and the replacement of all counters to make the restaurant more inviting as well as functional. We also replaced and upgraded all food service equipment, installed cold food storage, and upgraded all electrical, lighting, plumbing, accessibility, life and safety.
This project received LEED Gold Certification.
