Old Friends, New Friends

I first met Josh and Joseph photographing their work at a previous employer’s, but they’ve since broken out to establish Hermanos Design.  Gorgeous work right out of the gates!

And, yes this is a break from my Tour de 2018–these are current projects…but I’ll get back to those…

Downtown Rez

I am going to make a concerted effort to keep up with the blog.  I know I’ve said that in months past, but I am looking at all the projects I didn’t post in 2018, just to name one year.  And this year is more than half over, so…without further ado:

Lot of churches last year, so that’s where I’ll start.  This first one is the Downtown Campus of the Church of the Resurrection–or Downtown Rez–designed by GouldEvans Architects.  And it also is the church my own wife attends.

Commerce Tower

These are of the recently renovated Commerce Tower in downtown KC.  Does my heart good to see a stately old building given a renewed lease on life.  Design and construction by Ryan Companies.

Webster Parking

A cool parking structure is SO much nicer than a surface parking lot.  This one is across the street from the Webster House, downtown KC, MO – and ill look nicer still when grubby snow mounds are melted.  Designed by Helix, built by McCownGordon.

Ode to Summer

With Labor Day long behind us and now the equinox, I thought I’d drag out the  Memorial Day fireworks photos and post them finally.  And now I’m going to go make a hot dog.

Highland Place Apartments

I’m way behind again in updating the blog, so advance apologies to the loyal subscribers who are about to be buried in a sudden deluge.  Of COOL stuff!

These are a just a few of the interior photos done for Helix of their work at Highland Place apartments in the 18th + Vine neighborhood.  Their restoration of existing houses and apartment building won a 2013 Capstone Award.
