Built on the site of a former rock quarry, the granite once procured from this area and the wooden scaffolding used in the extraction process heavily influenced Pieper O’Brien Herr Architects’ design for this local retail center.
Stone pilasters and accents paired with rich wood siding are the only clues to this site’s former life. A variety of windows, awnings, canopies and brick vary the streetscape.
Concept Design Sketch:
The challenging site had an abandoned 95’ deep quarry that had filled with water. After millions of gallons of water was pumped out, the enormous hole was filled.
Pieper O’Brien Herr Architects prepared numerous sightline studies for prospective tenants to prove their visibility from the adjacent roads.
