The Half Pint Burger Bar and Crafts is a casual dining concept featuring over 50 different local beers on tap as well as gourmet burgers.  The design team created a gastropub environment with an industrial aesthetic using simple materials such as subway tile, brick, and reclaimed wood.  The core and shell’s flat iron shaped foot print of the space presented the design team a unique opportunity for the placement of the bar and keg coolers to offer guests active views of the gateway to the arena district.

Arena District
Final pieces falling into place for Arena District, 20 years later

It was 20 years ago that Nationwide Arena opened at the corner of Nationwide Boulevard and Front Street as the home of the National Hockey League expansion team the Columbus Blue Jackets. Architect Dan Hanes describes the area pre-arena as “basically parking lots, with a few small buildings here and there.” Hanes’ firm at the time, Heinlein Schrock out of Kansas City, partnered with NBBJ on the arena’s design, and Hanes set up shop in Columbus to help Nationwide Realty with offices, condominiums and apartments. The 200-acre district now stretches to I-670 on the north, the Olentangy River on the west, North High Street on the east and West Spring Street to the south. Parks Edge and the Chipotle building will continue a design tradition that emphasizes brick facades with a striking incorporation of glass.

The Arena District

It all started with one project and a move to Columbus. With over a decade of collaboration with MKSK and Nationwide Realty Investors, our Studio’s principals have designed many of the districts transformational projects.
