Ron Blitch, Blitch/Knevel Architects announced the completion of “The Food Court at Memorial Hospital Gulfport”. The new food court at Memorial Hospital at Gulfport features exhibition cooking as part of its new servery.
The multiple food presentation areas include sandwiches, hot plates, pizzas and salads. Vending machines and warming areas are also provided.
A large open area provides flexible seating options. The food court functions as a connector of the hospital with the Medical Office Building and 750 car parking garage, also designed by Blitch/Knevel. This location allows convenient meal service for visitors and staff with minimal walking through the medical center campus.
A decorative window wall of clear glass and colored panels visually separates the servery from the dining area and provides security during non-operating hours. Bright colors and accent lighting provide an energetic ambiance. Undulating countertops edges, multiple ceiling levels and floating open grids are also used to provide visual excitement.
