Joe's Cafe, The Wharton School's first LEED for Commercial Interiors project, was recently completed at the University of Pennsylvania. Located in Steinberg Hall – Dietrich Hall, the project demonstrates the school's commitment to sustainable practices and also a revitalization of the building that houses The Wharton School administration, several academic department offices, Wharton faculty offices, conference rooms, and a number of important teaching spaces. When Voith & Mactavish Architects was retained to prepare a concept design for the building, originally designed by McKim, Mead and White in 1952, the initial focus was to create a unified image for the Wharton campus and to incorporate the core aesthetics of the campus's flagship building, Jon M. Huntsman Hall. The project also strove to best represent Wharton's three core values: commitment to innovation, global outreach, and social impact. An important social space which has improved opportunities for collegiality for the school, the café has already become a destination and a draw to the broader Penn population. Although a food service venue was in this location before, the space has been reconfigured to provide a large workable kitchen and an adjacent open area for the servery and display. The 1,300 sq ft addition has a green roof and provides a seating area that looks out onto Steinhardt Garden, along Woodland Walk. This space features 18 feet high ceilings, full height windows, and doors that open out onto the newly created outdoor seating areas. A steel trellis with limestone clad columns extends this garden pavilion and provides shade both for the interior space as well as for the intimate outdoor rooms for summer dining. The seating area is self contained, and is used for meetings, study, and social events when the servery is not in operation. In addition to the café, approximately 6,500 sq ft was reworked to provide a more efficient reprographics center, a vending area and a new office suite complete with windows that face the west entrance courtyard. Public restrooms were made more accessible by relocating them from within the cafe, to the main corridor. A redesign of the service entry and Steinberg Hall Dietrich Hall Renovations - Joe’s Cafe corridor off the existing loading dock was made separate from the public entrance, now ADA accessible. A three story tower addition adjacent to the south stair provides upper story offices, a multi-purpose room and conference rooms. This modern addition responds to and supports the original intentions of the 1950s stripped down classicism of McKim, Mead & White's original design.
