MICROSOFT CAFE 50
Location: Redmond, Washington
The Microsoft Cafe 50 project is the re-model of an existing cafe on the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA. Cafe 50 is one of the campus’ smaller cafes, and as a result the space was re-imagined on a minimal budget. Strategies includes re-using some of the existing casework locations, strategic demolition for daylight penetration and careful visual delineation between serving stations. The transformation of the cafe into a multi-dimensional hub of multiple vendor stations and varied seating options resulted in a drastic improvement for the Building 50 occupants.
