The interior design should adhere to concepts of sustainability including, but not limited to, durable materials that last, the incorporation of up-cycled and repurposed materials, minimal carbon footprint, “self-cleaning” eco-friendly materials or those requiring limited maintenance (such as SLIPS and diatomaceous earth), in addition to transitional/convertible furnishings and/or walls. The kitchen will be a culinary teaching kitchen as well as a commercial kitchen.
