This modern commercial kitchen project was a collaboration between Cesar NYC and Gensler Architects, who also handled the interior design elements in the space. This kitchen was created for the financial institute UBS Bank, and located on the 13th floor of the UBS Building in Midtown Manhattan.

USB Bank engaged Cesar NYC and Gensler Architects to create this space as a corporate pantry for their employees at their busy midtown office. The space, which offers stunning city views, needed to aesthetically embrace NYC USB Bank’s brand while offering the functionality of a modern European kitchen to be used by employees throughout the day.

To offset extensive use of the space, we used robust materials including gray wood texture laminate, the most durable material. Toe kicks were done in an aluminum finish, and glass wall cabinets in black finish and a glass backsplash. A long refrigerator was fully integrated into the cabinets in the space, as was an ice maker. Two microwave ovens are visible in the space.

This was an exciting collaboration with Gensler Architects and allowed our designers to take our extensive knowledge and experience with high-end Italian kitchen cabinetry and design into a new and exciting space, exploring the application of kitchen cabinetry and kitchen functionality.
