Designing A Creative Haven In Omaha

Shive-Hattery designers craft their own workspace that honors history and inspires collaboration

< Back to All Insights

Shive-Hattery’s Omaha design studio is set in the historic granary and seed company building constructed in the early 1900s — a part of the larger Granary District Redevelopment, located in Ralston, Nebraska.

Situated at the south end of the large, barrel-shaped building, the renovations were aimed at maintaining the building’s historic and unique character. Designers approached the project by creating a modern take on the industrial style and repurposing materials from the building itself.

The result is a versatile and collaborative workspace. The space boasts a range of environments, carefully designed to accommodate various work styles. From secluded focus rooms for intensive work to an engaging design charrette collaboration space, the new layout encourages natural interactions, fosters creativity, and cultivates a sense of camaraderie among team members.
