Economic Development & Culinary Arts Building
Long Beach Community College East Campus: Long Beach, CA
The building provides space for the Culinary Arts teaching labs, teaching restaurant and kitchen, classrooms, faculty offices, East Campus Dean’s office and the Economic Development department. Featuring the most up-to-date equipment and technology, the future building will feature a demonstration kitchen suitable for showcasing and filming visiting chefs in front of live audiences.
Special challenges: Site selection and planning within highly built out existing campus site, complex culinary lab requirements. Collaborated with food service consultant to develop state of the art design of culinary teaching spaces, including a restaurant to be staffed by students for learning.
