Landing Beer Company
Fort Wayne, Indiana
Landing Beer Company offers beer and barbeque on the newly restored historic district. The fresh interior fit-out exposes over 100 years of building history. Approaching the entrance, patrons are invited inside by large storefront windows with a view of the vibrant interiors. The windows are framed by restored limestone bays, providing views of the outdoor seating and the revitalized streetscape. The newly constructed addition to The Landing, 111 W. Columbia Street, can be seen in the background. Original terrazzo floors from 1914 were restored to their former glory after years under carpeting. Custom wood countertops and tables, subtle modern mood lighting, and a prominent industrial-age light fixture over the main bar are juxtaposed against exposed historic brick and large round columns, creating an engaging balance between old and new. The custom light fixture, inspired by historic outdoor markets, shines over an exterior advertisement for New York Salt uncovered during construction.
