Willow Garage Cafe

Menlo Park, CA

The owners of a growing company that designs and builds robots wanted to provide its hard working engineers with healthy nourishing meals.  We worked closely with a kitchen consultant and the contractor to design an efficient and cost effective space.  Acknowledging that some of the engineer’s best ideas come when they are away from their desks the layout features communal dining tables and lounge areas to encourage interaction between the employees.  In the lounge areas we used a special paint so the engineers can work out their ideas right on the walls.
