Being a place to celebrate the positive accomplishments that mascots have played in professional sports, The National Mascot Hall of Fame will not only be about the mascots, but also families and children. The Hall of Fame contains interactive displays that profile the mascot lifestyle as well as teach children about the science involved in entertaining others. The 27,278 SF building contains a three-story glass atrium space that separates the building into different programming areas and serves as a vertical circulation and organizational device. Program areas on either side of the atrium are accessed by walkways or “bridges” that provide.
The interior buildout for Mrs. Dornberg’s Culinary Experience in Highland, Indiana is complete. The owner of the business needed to move into a larger space to continue to grow her business with a more functional layout and a more pleasant experience for her students. The end result is a 2,037 SF space that combines a full commercial teaching kitchen with a curved demonstration island that overlooks seating for 20+ students and a large retail area for the selling of cooking supplies and accessories. The finished space includes high end finishes and video monitors for student viewing of live cooking demonstrations.
The County Line Orchard Barn is a 30,000 SF facility created to serve as a retail center for County Line Orchard as well as a banquet facility for weddings and other occasions. To enhance the visitor’s experience, the owners sought to create a structure that evoked an authentic farm building. Due to its heavy timber construction, most of the main structure utilizes mortise and tenon joints secured with solid oak pins, very similar to how a piece of furniture might be assembled or a barn might have been built hundreds of years ago. Of course, the main difference is that.
