The Ice Haus concept is the reimagined vision of an existing building district in North East downtown Columbus.
The project brief asked The Studio to create a “World Class” design for the adaptive reuse of an old Ice storage building located in the North-East corner of downtown Columbus. Our Concept’s programmatically included a mix of residential, retail, and office space. The residential tower houses 212 parking spaces, while the mixed-use building is retail on the first level with office space on the upper levels. Our vision was to explore the existing masonry juxtaposed with a contemporary and reminiscent glass addition to the existing structure’s old ice-making capability.
