INSTITUTE FOR FOOD, WINE, WELLNESS | STUDY
Seattle Central College asked Boxwood to develop a concept for this proposed center located just off campus. It is a multi-story facility dedicated to educating students on how to create healthy nutritious food that is also delicious. Included in the program are the following spaces: restaurants, retail incubator spaces on street level, offices, 150 seat auditorium with a demonstration kitchen, teaching kitchens, food lab, computer lab, microbiology lab, and a roof top organic garden and greenhouse. The building incorporates an existing two story brick building into its footprint. Materials are steel, concrete, perforated weathering steel, and curtainwall glass. Classrooms spaces are visually open to the street to create interest in the program and to be able to “see” students participating in a new type of culinary education.
