Fire Up Some Flavor at HP5R
What’s a modern new campus without some personality? Henny Penny wanted the downtown Dayton space to tell its own story, with reflections of the company culture, the city’s unique history, and reinforcements of the new campus name, look and feel. Working with a local architectural and design firm, The Ohlmann Group’s designers identified the perfect places within the space to create interior architectural details that tie in the brand.
A striking piece of foam wall art with the HP5R moniker greets visitors when they walk in the door, setting expectations for a bright, fresh space. This piece serves as both a design accent and needed sound abatement. Farther inside, a photo collage reflects the importance of Henny Penny’s employee-owners. Throughout the space, bold, flowing lines in frosted glass strengthen the campus tie to the rivers’ convergence.
The new Henny Penny campus in the Manhattan Building brought with it a history of its own. The space previously served as the home of a wholesale grocery. Leftover from that era was an industrial scale that was likely used to weigh grain and other commodities. The Ohlmann Group team renovated the historical piece and created signage to tell its story – honoring the past while innovating for the future.
