An industrial warehouse building gets reimagined into modern-day office space.
The studio approached this project with the goal to achieve a successful design solution by creating a unique office space for the Columbus market. This proposed redesign will attract potential clients looking for a signature location proximate to the downtown area for their business. Our studio re-imagined the existing warehouse building into a 21st-century creative space. The design team integrated a redesign solution for increasing leasable square footage by utilizing the height of the warehouse space through the addition of mezzanines. The existing parking conditions also played a role in the influence of the buildings redesign and how users will enter and interact with the building.
The Ice Haus concept is the reimagined vision of an existing building district in North East downtown Columbus.
Our team helped to transform the former daily newspaper headquarters — and recent addition to the Historic Register of Places — into a modern work space without losing its historic integrity
Our team’s task: Prove that the first and second floor office space in the skinny, low-ceilinged Dispatch Building could be transformed into a modern, inspired mix of private offices, collaboration spaces, reception, and meeting rooms.
