SHP recently served as the architect and interior designer for multiple office suites for The Budd Dairy project that combines true loft-style offices with a local food hall collaboration in an iconic building in the Italian Village neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. Originally built in 1916, the eastern half of the Budd Dairy Building is being converted from the loft warehouse space that stood empty for years into unique office suites ranging from 1,888sf up to 3,950sf.
The SHP team recently relocated our Columbus office to this historic location, and in doing so, connected with another local firm (Libbey Glass) interested in designing a unique office environment in the building. In both offices, the design celebrates the historical features of the Budd Dairy Building through the preservation of the iconic bow truss roof. Both suites feed into a shared courtyard gathering space that includes a fire pit and lounging furniture.
- With nods to our headquarters in Cincinnati, key design elements throughout the 2,800sf space create a true sense of connectivity between the two SHP offices.
- The renovated space for our Columbus team preserves exposed structures including original walls and an iconic bow truss roof to promote the historical features of the re-purposed building.
The office features an open atmosphere with two conference rooms, a full kitchen and a central gathering space.
