TACKarchitects won the Architectural People’s Choice Award for Excellence in Interiors for the new Fareway Meat Market in late September at the American Institute of Architects – Nebraska Chapter Awards Ceremony.
DSC completed construction on the new 6,000 SF full-service, stand-alone Meat Market earlier this year in Omaha, Nebraska.
The new store offers a 56’ expanded meat counter (with new items such as veal, lamb, and seafood), as well as artisan cheeses, high quality wines, and craft beer. The idea behind the market is to provide all of the meat, seasonings and accessories needed to make a meat-centered meal.
The Meat Market also includes a limited produce section, snacks like gourmet pretzels and popcorns, and a few staples like eggs and milk as well as plastic cups and paper plates. The meat case includes several pre-marinated and pre-seasoned items that are ready to hit the grill as soon as customers get home. Grass-fed beef and organic chicken are also available.
As a focal part to the design, included in the space is a large statue of a steer, which sits atop a ledge and can be seen from outside through a window. At 800 pounds, the steer was hoisted to its position with a pulley and lift kit. It was created by an Omaha artist. Also included in the design is a triangulated surface above the meat counter that represents the folding and packaging of meat.
