FedExFamilyHouse Featured by USGBC for Homelike Design

USGBC – Creating a space that felt like home for families of children receiving treatment at Methodist Lebonheur Hospital was the driving vision of FedExFamilyHouse. "We had to balance operational efficiency with the need for it to be really comfortable and feel like a place you would want to stay," said LRK Principal Tony Pellicciotti. "The average visit is maybe two days, but we've had families stay for over a year. If you're living out of a hotel for that long, it's not a comfortable situation. You need to have a home."

Additionally, FedExFamilyHouse received LEED Gold certification for its sustainable building process and features, including significant reductions in energy use (23%) and water use (46%), access to various forms of public transportation, and recycling stations in common areas. "The commitment by ownership, design team and contractors together to this holistic sustainability approach is what really sets the project apart," said LRK Associate and 2020 LEED Fellow Krissy Flickinger.

Experiential Retail Adjusts for a Post-COVID Comeback

REBusinessOnline - The LRK-designed renovation of The Hill shopping center is featured in the February issue of Shopping Center Business magazine, along with quotes from Principal Craig Henry. The article explores how experiential retail has responded to the pandemic and how design will continue to shift to be reflective of a post-COVID world. Henry “envisions large outdoor spaces being divided up to offer smaller, more intimate opportunities for socializing. If done correctly, each space would offer its own aesthetic and experience. Visitors are likely to discover a different space each time they visit and will want to come back for continued exploring. These spaces are intimate and not crowded, as smaller grouped areas may be preferable in the future.”
