The ING Direct Café is an interior project, and collaboration between Gensler, NY, and PECK.  On the ground floor space of the ING Direct Offices in West Los Angeles, CA, ING Direct created their third café in the US intended to promote their internet based banking products on the west coast.  The café is also designed to serve as a meeting place and a lunch facility for the employees of the bank offices on the upper floors.

The design of the Café interior is by Gensler, New York.  PECK served as Architect of Record.  PECK ARCHITECTURE revised the millwork design, created a new storefront design, coordinated all of the food service consulting and back-bar layout, and provided full construction documents, permitting services, and construction administration services.

PECK STRUCTURAL designed the supports for building signage, roof mounted mechanical equipment, Data Room UPS equipment, the Café Storefront, the Cafe Entry Canopy, Street fronting protective bollards, and Parking deck mounted generator supports.
