About this project

Barr Gazetas Architects has transformed a 1980's office building into 26,000 sq. ft. of state of the art culinary facilities. These include lecture theatres with demonstration areas, practical kitchens, cuisine, pastry and bakery kitchens, 'smart' classrooms, student lounge and welfare facilities and main reception. As part of the project Barr Gazetas designed Le Cordon Bleu's first European Café which is now open to the public. Located in Pied Bull Yard behind the British Museum the Café provides freshly made patisseries and a lunch menu for indoor or alfresco dining. Speaking about the school the President of Le Cordon Bleu, André J. Cointreau said, “I had very high expectations for this building, and our Architects, Barr Gazetas, have surpassed them all”. Barr Gazetas' design philosophy provides the students with a modern educational experience without compromising the values of Le Cordon Bleu's heritage. In the Demonstration lecture theatres perfect sightlines and state of the art AV equipment provide up to 80 students with an excellent learning environment. The use of flexible walls on the 4th floor provides either 4 'smart' classrooms or a large open floor space for events and graduation ceremonies.
