Unique Architecture

My family and I recently took a weekend trip to Louisville, KY. We had a nice time seeing the sights and exploring what the city had to offer. As we were walking around downtown, a very unique building (at least it used to be a building) caught my eye. In the picture, you can see that they kept the façade of this old historic building on West Main St., but tore down the rest of the building. They actually made a city park out of what used to be the building. There are playgrounds and sports fields where the building once was. I have never seen this done before and it really caught my eye. Whoever designed this was able to keep the old historic charm of the adjacent buildings, while creating an outdoor gathering space for the general public.

This got me thinking about “Unique Architecture” and how it can be used on all kinds of projects. For instance there may be a local municipality that has deemed a specific building or area as historic and one way to work with that local governing body would be to think outside the box and keep a façade in place, while removing the rest of the building. We often come upon clients that want a unique architectural feature in their building, such as a comic book store wanting their building to mimic a famous landmark in a Marvel comic series, or an owner that loves New York City and wants his building to take on the look of the New York skyline. There are endless options when it comes to unique elements in architecture.   

If you’re in the market for something unique or something that stands out from the rest, give us a call, we’d love to help you bring your unique architectural vision to life.
