Four BNIM projects were honored at the AIA Iowa awards in Des Moines, including the only two Honor Awards for the evening: Pacific Center Campus Development - Amenities Building, Private Residence, American Enterprise Group - National Headquarters Renovation, and University of Iowa Visual Arts Building.
The interior renovation of 2460 Pershing revitalized the iconic 1970s massive brutalist structure into a modern work environment that is a replicable model for transformative workplace design. Large windows expose views over Kansas City’s Crown Center commercial complex and landscaped grounds. Workspaces were designed with collaboration and creativity in mind. A large central space spans two studio zones, where teams can meet and utilize various forms of technology to work collaboratively on projects. A total of 15 conference rooms provide spaces for all needs, from secluded areas to work individually to a maker space for prototyping and testing models under a variety of lighting conditions.
Two talented BNIM designers were recently recognized for their contributions to the community and to the design profession.
