Farina

The centerpiece of the renovation of the building at 1901 Baltimore in the heart of Kansas City’s historic Crossroads Arts District is Farina, the latest restaurant from James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Smith and his wife and managing partner Nancy. A modern Italian concept inspired by the regions of Tuscany and Umbria, the 5,500 square-foot restaurant features seating for 90 guests and a 20-seat private party room.

The 18,000 square-foot building also houses the Haw Gallery on the first floor and office space on the second floor. A new vertical circulation core was added to the back of the building to provide access to the office space. STAND collaborated with Helix and McCownGordon Construction to deliver this award-winning project.
