City Kitchen – New York City, New York

Isaac Kremer/ July 25, 2019/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

City Kitchen is just off Broadway on an upper floor and part of a growing Food Hall movement. Several businesses share a large space rather than the high cost of owning independent buildings or storefronts. The effect is with more offerings people will go out of their way to visit the Food Hall knowing greater choice is possible. Added synergies are created being connected with a neighboring hotel. Interesting tiered seating and stairs connect the City Kitchen and hotel.

Food court style seating with row of restaurants, and two floating islands.
Exposed ductwork, tiles, wood, and metal evoke an industrial aesthetic.
Interesting valance feature over food island that defines the space and also allows staging for lighting and other technology.
Fixed louvers by windows limit direct sunlight at peak times, and also gives staging space for props and product.

An informal social meeting and gathering space can also make an impromptu stage for small performances.
