Great Spaces: State Farm Café, State Farm Operations Center, Duluth, Ga.

Renovation creates a serene, open space for employees respite.

The designers of the space took inspiration from the surrounding area, which is wooded, says Ed Baradine, division manager for Southern Foodservice Management’s Atlantic Region. "They carried that through the servery with organic colors—very calm and serene. They did a really nice job with the lighting at each station so it really highlights all the food."
