Pendulum’s 10 Year Anniversary Countdown Day 16

Day 16

Today’s featured project is 1512 Holmes Street located in the East Crossroads District of Kansas City, MO.  This adaptive reuse of a former transmission repair shop serves as the midwest headquarters of Pendulum.

This 5,000 SF interior accurately reflects the personality and interests of its owners who are automotive enthusiasts.  There are subtle hints of the relationship between the building’s past use and its present inspiration throughout.  The overall aesthetic of the interior revolves around a balance of raw materials with a consistent notion of refined edges.

Conference Room Transformation

Typical Workstations

Finding innovative ways to customize elements within the design for multi-purpose and flexibility was a key component of the design challenge.  Therefore the first-floor conference room table transforms into a billiards table that accommodates formal and informal hospitality.  The second-floor east lounge acts as an informal living room and presentation space, while the second-floor west lounge is reserved for formal entertainment and board meetings with a restored 1920’s Koken barber chair as the centerpiece.

The preconceived notion of how a work environment is supposed to look, feel, and function is challenged by our space.  Some believe that a business is supposed to be serious and efficient.  In this case we are a bit more eclectic, the ultimate compliment is when people see the space and ask what we actually do for a living.  “Is this an office, a bar, a billiards hall, an automotive shop, a speakeasy…do you get any work done?”  The answer is yes to all of the above…this space represents a lifestyle that fosters creativity in contrast to a “bin for stacking people”.

Interesting Fact:

1512 Holmes Street was the recipient of the 2017 IIDA Kansas City Mid America Design Awards (MADA) Silver Award for Renovation & Restoration.
