Our team was a finalist for the international competition for the daylighting of the Town Branch Commons Creek led by Balmori and JDS architects. Our strategy centered on the portion of Vine Street between Rupp Arena and Limestone Street . This segment is significant as it plugs itself into two zones of already existing capacity: Rupp and its square, electrified at times of games and events, and Limestone, the main artery connecting the Kentucky University and Transylvania University with a series of small cultural and commercial programs interlaced in between. Converting this section of downtown to public and smaller scale activities that revolve around active recreation creates new civic realm for the city of Lexington. Theodore Hoerr led the design of this project while at Balmori. Images courtesy of Balmori.
