Exterior Perspective-looking northeast
A mixed use arts building at 4th and Main in Little Rock, Arkansas. This building is intended to serve as a gateway to a revitalized Main Street, which is to be repurposed from a (failed) commercial street to a 'creative corridor.'
The ground floor is given over to gallery, shop, and cafe space, while the upper floors are speculative office space with key arts programming interspersed throughought.
The building parti is a simple courtyard typology, with procession around the perimeter of the courtyard encouraging casual and repetitive meetings between inhabitants of the building, helping to create a creative community.
