Modern educational building facade at twilight featuring a glass-walled walkway, illuminated interior spaces, sleek metal roof accents, and warm wooden cladding on a revolving entrance door area. The design integrates clear and opaque materials harmoniously, showcasing contemporary architectural style.

Nestled between traditional brick structures at Capital One’s West Creek campus, Café 56 is a bold initiative that transforms the conventional cafeteria concept into an exploratory food marketplace that encourages discovery and spontaneous socializing. The design highlights include a double-height façade, an angled roof with extensive glazing, and a dynamic “service island” accentuated by a floating bulkhead of backlit glass bottles and reclaimed barn-wood, evocative of Richmond’s industrial past. Differentiated zones within the large hall, like the “Porch” gathering area, the “International Food Area,” and the “Juice Bar,” offer varied dining experiences. An operable glass wall blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, inviting natural light in and an enhancing employees’ mood.
