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.
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.
