Today’s featured project is Bethany Medical Clinic located in Kansas City, KS. This 10,000 SF clinic serves as a hand on student training facility while accommodating the needs of the local Wyandotte County community. This project was our second medical facility for Swope Health Services.
We recently finished up a photo shoot of the event space and studio highlighting a few of the unique details. It’s funny how we often take for granted all the little touches here and there, especially when you’re so close to the project. In any case, the posted photos are a nice stroll down memory lane.
The Guild KC is a multi-use space designed to be a hub of creativity and a place for local artists, musicians and builders to gather, work and play. The building program includes an outdoor garden, large open interior, and office mezzanine that is home to an internationally recognized photography studio. The interior design is meant to communicate the notion of timeless craft with hints of contemporary geometries that are highlighted by down-to-earth raw materials. This design methodology thoughtfully compliments the personality of the building Owners.
Consideration was given to sustainability throughout the project – the space is equipped with elements that welcome natural light and showcase reclaimed materials in ceilings, countertops and floors. The incorporation of white Subway tile complimented by hand-made Edison bulb wall sconces attribute to a nostalgic feel throughout. The hand assembled chandelier serves as the focal piece of the event space.
500 SF oil soaked 2” x 14” joists (used for stair tread and counters)
9’-0” tall 1930’s era empire chandelier (reclaimed from Miami, FL ballroom)

Random Shout out
One of our esteemed colleagues toured the space during construction because his daughter wanted to book the space for her wedding. He told the Owners “you’ll NEVER finish this project in time”…he then pulled his deposit. The wedding was scheduled for October 2012 – we received our official occupancy permit in June 2012.
Thanks for the fuel! We love a good challenge…btw, the price just doubled.
