The Nebraska/Iowa Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers recently announced the winners of their annual design contest. Jessica Lindersmith of US Properties won Gold for this space, designed for The Tap Room at The Boiler Brewing Co. in Lincoln.

To reach this area, a person must descend a hidden staircase. A five-panel oak door then leads into the brewery of this 100-year-old building. Significant effort was made to retain and highlight all original elements, each with a story of its own. Original doors and marble were reused, and the boiler doors were hung on the wall. The wood panels of the custom bar mimic the original design of the building. Spotlights focus on the stainless steel tanks behind the bar and the tap tower with its handmade, unique taps. Furnishings were arranged to create a variety of conversational areas, including booths, moveable tables and chairs, and a raised lounge area.
