Study of interior lobby space and exterior food carts to provide conceptual options for Northeastern University ISEC Cafe.
PCA’s study provided Northeastern University with multiple conceptual design solutions for a cafe to be located in the lobby of the new Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Complex designed by Payette.
Scheme 1 offered a broader menu selection with items assembled at the time of order. Scheme 2 was a grab-n-go open market concept. As a self-serve market, food was pre-packaged, and staff could be minimized. Coordinating food kiosks were also envisioned for the exterior walkway / patio area to complement food programs at peak hours.
