Kansas City, Missouri
Named as the top 200 best photographers in the world, Lindsey and Linden Wade sought to relocate their photography space to an old abandoned metal warehouse. The four parcel purchase included an attached brick warehouse that Pendulum converted to an event space featuring a seven foot chandelier. A beer garden featuring one of the only green spaces in the East Crossroads dawns a party tent as needed to adjacent parking.
The design reflects the era of the 1920's using Edison light bulbs, subway tile and tin metal cornices. The exposed brick, exposed barrel vault and custom metal stairs with copper tread trimming adds a nice balance between old and new. Reclaimed hardwood ceilings from a barn and kitchen island and bathroom sinks from the floor of a Harley Davidson Motorcycle plant speak to the inherent sustainable approach to design.
