Founders Food Hall
About this Project
The original concrete floors, brick walls, pilasters, steel structure and wood plank roof have been fully exposed, creating an expression of the industrial design and a perfect backdrop to the atmosphere of the market. All millwork, cabinetry, fixtures and materials were carefully selected to provide contrast to the original brick and to modernize the space. Using a combination of steel, rough and finished birch and maple, and a touch of tile and glass provided a clean and inviting atmosphere for an intimate market experience. A large wood and steel trellis adds coziness and was designed as an abstract representation of elevated train tracks that would have once existed on the floor below.
This beautiful and historic brick structure has come full circle and is once again providing an important service to the Island.
