State Capitol

Commonwealth of Kentucky

Next Project

Designed by the noted architect Frank Mills Andrews, Kentucky's State Capitol had its grand opening on the 10th of June 1910, after five years of construction. Since then, it has been continuously occupied by all three branches of the Government, with most of its character-defining features remaining intact.

From its completion in 1910 to the present, the building has had a commanding presence in the skyline of Frankfort placed on a promontory along the Kentucky River. The Capitol grounds were designed by the Olmsted Brothers, the pioneering landscape architecture firm. In 1971, the site and the building were listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

In 2020, Champlin | EOP, in association with PDP Architects, Philadelphia, were selected to restore the Dome, Roof and Windows, and subsequently were awarded the project for a full-scale restoration and renovation of the building. This work will effectively modernize the workplace for its approximately 575 occupants while simultaneously repairing the aging building, thus restoring and preserving the Capitol for future generations.
