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

Renovation creates a serene, open space for employees respite.

Baradine says the flow of the space is the most practical element of the new design. "The points of service are spread around and everything has an arched flow to it. We moved some of the stations to give much more space. I’ve also heard a lot of comments about the copper hood wraparounds. That gives a really impressive look to the space."
