Designed to be homey and familiar, Fareground's interior is decked out with materials like warm wood, white tile and marble countertops, accented with blackened steel and colorful tile. A large steel and white oak sculpture at the entryway of the food hall lters in natural light during the day and trans- forms into a lantern at night. At the opposite end, a 42-foot light xture anchors the black marble and brass grand staircase. Custom communal tables and softly upholstered seating areas encourage an engaged ambience, while large windows wash the space in daylight and connect to the greenery of the family-friendly outdoor plaza designed by landscape archi- tecture rm dwg. The plaza features native grass and regional botanicals. The hall hosts 10 vendors, including Dai Due Taqueria, Chef Kevin Fink's Henbit, Chef Andrew Wiseheart's burger restaurant Contigo, Ni-Kome, a ramen shop and others. The Fareground Bar sits in the center of the eatery stalls. Photos courtesy of Chase Daniel
