The Reds Hall of Fame Shop

Great American Ball Park: Cincinnati, Ohio

Commissioned by the Cincinnati Reds for their recently renovated Hall of Fame Shop, CHAATRIK Architecture developed a new free-standing structure to extend the existing Hall Of Fame retail space outdoors and provide an easily accesssible space for fans during game days.

Playing off themes of the Big Red Machine and the iconic form of the "dugout", our team worked diligently to truly craft this intimate building. Employing principles of sustainability and adhering to budgetary constraints, we incoporated found items from the existing stadium into the design, including an overhead garage door, glass panels and exterior doors.

Great American Ball Park

Is that Barry Larkin?



Through careful attention to detail, the design team brought forth the brand of the Hall of Fame into specific materials and lighting selections. The Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati was enhanced with a fixed permenant shop saving hours of labor setting up and taking down non permanent structures each game; this thoughtfully constructed structure allows the Cincinnati Reds organization to:

  • Save Money & Time on labor setting up and taking down a temporary shop each game
  • Utilize unused space on the stadium plaza adding to the festive environment at Great American
  • Utlize existing materials the team had in storage / blend into the park.
  • Create a new attraction on the plaza that looks like A MLB Dugout!
  • Pay proper tribute to the team's Hall Of Fame players and their saught after Memorabilia.
