Architecture firms office West Alabama @ Mulberry

Recommended Posts

I was told that this new construction next door to Sicardi gallery is an architecture firms new offices.

Pictures will follow. The building structure is all steel and looks like it will be a very interesting addition to the Menil neighborhood.

This project gets more interesting every day. I like the east/west cut out that runs through the base of the building.  The orientation with Sicardi Gallery creates some nice negative and positive spaces. The opening is  more visually affective  approaching from the west down Alabama from Mandell. The affect of the horizontal wood siding juxtaposed against Sicardi Gallery's galvanized corrugation is visually appealing.  The scale of that extraordinary cantilevered  eastern side of the  offices is dramatic. I like this project.

I was told this is the office of Parra Architects.

That texture is actually a leaf motif that is carved or pressed in the building material. This was actually previewed in their original sign announcing the construction which was made of this same material. It really came out nice. This stretch of Alabama is really getting to be an interesting area. 

So we now have a Happy Dog, X, which is a very cool retail arts space, Dillon Kyle, Sicardi, Boxwood and coming soon a retail center and restaurant at Mandell. Very cool and all across from the Menil neighborhood. Glad to see this upgrade and dynamics happening to a very 

walkable neighborhood. Even though I don't live there anymore happy to see it filling in with such great energy.
