Gatta Development Corporation
Hasenstab Architects provided architectural, structural and interior design services for a new restaurant, V2 (pronounced V squared) located in the first floor/street level of The Federal Building in Youngstown, Ohio. The rehabilitation combined five existing storefronts into a single unit to house the new restaurant. The existing divisions of space, combined with new openings, were kept to give a sense of what was there while allowing a new function to exist within.
The building is on the National Historic Register and was originally designed by Daniel Burnham. Hasenstab Architects worked through the design details with the Ohio Historical Society to come up with a design for the restaurant that showcased the existing architecture while still allowing the new to stand out. The owner /builder received tax credits for the building per the National Historic Society Standards.
