Next Project

The exterior of this project was designed to be a backdrop to the natural plantings and trees surrounding the plaza, as well as a complement to the existing Graeser Family Education Center.

This building is part of a Phase 1C for the Waterfront Botanical Gardens Masterplan. It includes a multi-purpose classroom and event space, an educational greenhouse, and a workshop area for the grounds horticulturalist. The greenhouse, which is a main feature of the building, will be used to educate children on horticultural and sustainable practices. It slides cleanly into the structure of the building and is meant to be a focal point of the plaza as well as an eye-catcher from the highway that runs along the south side of the site. This project was awarded the IIDA Louisville/Lexington, Merit Award, 2023 and the AIA Kentucky Honor Award, 2022.
