Day 03

Today’s featured project is Swope Health Services South, an adaptive reuse of a defunct retail center located at 88th and Troost in Kansas City, MO.    This 3,500 SF clinic was designed to accommodate an expansion to 10,000 SF.

Interesting Fact:

The health services check-out counters pictured in the image above were designed and fabricated components in Pendulum’s modular design studio.  They are constructed of bent aluminum plates with powder and clear coat finish.

 

Pendulum’s 10 Year Anniversary Countdown Day 01

May 18, 2017 marks Pendulum’s tenth year in business.  We’ll be adding an image of a featured built project each day for the next eighteen days as we march toward our official incorporation day.  We will then reveal our commemorative ten-year logo and other fun things along the way.

Day 01

Today’s featured project is a small restroom and storage building that we call “Rooftop Hospitality”.  Located in the Power & Light District of Kansas City, MO above Consentino’s Downtown Market garage, this project is one of our early built works that showcased our improvisational design skills.

In 2009 the City of Kansas City, MO desired to host events on the roof of the then new parking garage but were lacking restroom accommodations and therefore did not meet minimum public assembly requirements.  Although this project was inspired by modular studies that were in the early stages of research and development amongst our design staff, “Rooftop Hospitality” was built using conventional construction methodology.  Even so, we learned critical lessons that served as the foundation for concepts and ideas that we advanced and presented to clients ranging from government officials interested in disaster relief modules for Port Au Prince, Haiti to baseball team owners in search of economical infrastructure solutions.
