CIA at Copia Teaching Kitchen

Location: St. Helena, CA

Project Architect(s): Architectural Resources Group

Sq. Footage: 9,000

The interior remodel of the Hestan Teaching Kitchen at the CIA at Copia turned the 9,000 square foot space into a state-of-the-art culinary education masterpiece. What was once a gallery kitchen is now a participatory teaching kitchen where food lovers have the opportunity to learn from and cook alongside CIA chefs. The kitchen, a true culinary playground, is now equipped with six Hestan Commercial Suites, a repetition of commercial hoods and prep stations. In the back of the house are additional support areas for the kitchen and all new MEP systems along with a PG&E gas service upgrade.
