Moving the Bistro Forward

Following Marvel’s brief presentation about the new Bistro at the Community meeting today, I though these photos of yesterday’s planning meeting would show how the input and planning process has been going on.  As you know there will be an open house for people to see the mock up.  It will be on Tuesday from 11 to 2.  The mock-up is in the staff lounge, behind the kitchen area.  Do not go through the kitchen, rather go through the doors to the left of the elevators near the dining room exit (as you face the elevators).

Here is an overview of the ordering and food preparation area, as in the current design.IMG_20160728_125237789

Here are photos of the designer, Abagail Stewart, presenting the “mock-up” of the same area to the Bistro Steering Committee.  IMG_7187

Analysis of people flow.  Red is staff, blue is bistro customers.  Note that Ms. Stewart is drawing on the whiteboard, onto which the design has already been projected.IMG_7211

And perhaps most important of all, as noted in the Community Meeting, sound baffle options — part of a long discussion of how to make absolutely certain that acoustics are exactly as needed.  An acoustic expert is on the team, and constantly reviewing all the designs and choices.IMG_20160728_123005849IMG_20160728_123012417
