4301 INDIAN CREEK PARKWAY
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS
The 5,380 square foot building was designed by DA+E specifically to house its architectural, civil engineering and interior design staff. DA+E saw an opportunity to breathe new life into an area that had not seen significant growth or change for decades. The building takes advantage of natural park views and Indian Creek by utilizing a glass curtain wall on all exposures but most predominately on the north and east. Coupled with a natural wood and brick exterior, the building design creates a harmony of materials that work both inside and outside, bisected only by a transparent wall of glass.
PLAZA STREET PARTNERS
PRAIRIE VILLAGE, KANSAS
Plaza Street Partners had a vision for a “cool” space with a “wow” factor while working within certain parameters of the existing building. We reused the existing carpet and tried to preserve the existing floor plan layout as much as possible. New additions to this space included the break area and lounge space featuring a pool table, a feature wall in the reception area, custom wood ceiling and lighting solutions in the break room, added and expanded offices per the client’s needs, and providing “cool factors” with pops of the company’s orange brand color throughout.
KANSAS CITY, MO- CROSSROADS
Abbott Properties is an office space located in the Crossroads Business District. This project required a complete renovation of the existing building and facade. The design of this space is meant to keep within the industrial look of its neighboring businesses. This look was created by installing large windows with high, open rafter ceilings, concrete floors and industrial lighting.
RYAN TRANSPORATION SYSTEMS
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS
Ryan Transportation Systems was a new construction project with conventional brick masonry. DA+E was responsible for the architecture, engineering and interior design of the building. RTS was designed in accordance with the campus’s master plan.
RTS is a good example of DA+E’s multi-disciplined abilities. They were responsible for demolition of an existing strip center heavily relying on the civil engineering department for a proper solution, while the architecture department had to maintain a style of the RTS campus while being unique to the site. The interior department at DA+E was responsible for creating a world class headquarters on a tight budget.
