Locally Inspired Design and Food
Stirnella, a refined gastro pub, “…serves approachable food inspired by local and seasonal ingredients.” The design team renovated a former Firestone Tire Showroom and Machine Garage in a historic district. Finished concrete floors and exposed brick pair with wooden tables made from railcars of the old Omaha streetcar, providing a nod to history. Lighting demarcates various areas, and finishes (including green subway tile, quilted leather barstools, etc.) illustrate modern interpretations of classic elements.
Scope of Work
Date of Completion
Paintings of native animals by a local artist adorn the walls, while antique pieces (unearthed from the lead designer’s basement) help identify the hostess station and add character. Unique to the design was an all-season dining patio that also serves as a code-required vestibule. In nice weather garage doors open to the vibrant and bustling neighborhood outside.
