Coltivare Culinary Center

Ithaca, New York

A project for Tompkins Cortland Community College,

Coltivare is a farm-to-table culinary institute in Ithaca, NY.

The interior spans 17,000 square feet

and features culinary labs and kitchens, a public restaurant,

a wine cellar, exterior seating that overhauls the existing sidewalk

and two large assembly areas for events

split by a vertically-collapsible folding wall.

The interior finishes are varied: brick veneer, tile,

composite/rubber, and painted walls;

tile, wood and carpeted flooring;

and interesting finishes, like the reclaimed wood-trimmed

and tin-paneled ceiling clouds and filament bulbs.

Exterior LED lighting highlights the building

as a new destination in the city to support local education.
