The latest plan, from the Kelley Companies, calls for the building to be reimagined as a commercial hub, with a diverse mix of local businesses. Likely tenants include a coffee shop, a fitness center, office users on the second floor, and a restaurant featuring a tucked-in patio overlooking the Tuttle Park woods to the west.
With plans for a boutique hotel, a rooftop bar, loft offices and more, our goal is to transform the site of the long-dormant Hoster Brewing Company while keeping its history and architectural beauty on full display.
What makes a great architect? The answer to the question depends on you. How familiar are you with the design process? What type of building do you want to create? Do you have a style in mind or are you looking for inspiration? What size is the project?
I was raised Jewish with roots in an Orthodox family from Germany and Austria. My dad is the first person in our family to be born in America. My mom is one of 11 kids from a staunchly Catholic Mexican family. Growing up, what we did depended on who we were with.
As architects, we hear this word a lot. No, there isn’t enough money; No, the code won’t allow it; No the budget won’t permit it; and the ever popular No, I don’t like it. I have a friend who occasionally reminds me that “NO!” can be a complete sentence.
