Studios Architecture Designs an Arenalike Cafeteria for the NBA Headquarters in Manhattan
2022 Best of Year Winner for Commercial Cafeteria
No matter which of the NBA’s 30 rival teams you root for, they all share one thing in common: Manhattan headquarters, freshly renovated by Studios Architecture in time for the association’s 75th anniversary last season. When not glued to their screens—computer or super-size game monitors—employees get to meet and eat in this 7,300-square-foot cafeteria, which is defined by a servery and an event space and together create an arenalike experience. The first centers on Stern’s Deli, named after former NBA commissioner David Stern, and is surrounded by pizza, sandwich, and other food stations reminiscent of stadium concession stands. The double-height latter features bleachers in maple (the wood often used for basketball courts), under which the Triple Double coffee bar is tucked.
