retrofit - LRK is honored to have three projects featured in the November-December issue of retrofit magazine that focuses on the 4th annual Metamorphosis Awards. Kreate Hub Philly was recognized as the 3rd place winner in the Adaptive Reuse category, The Commonwealth won Honorable Mention in the Mixed-Use category, and the Renasant Convention Center won 4th place in the Whole Building category.
Jurors commenting on the Renasant Convention Center said, “I gasped at the before-and-after for this project. Projects of this scale are rare and often transformational on a civic scale. Modernization of the envelope is dramatic, and daylighting the concourse/meeting rooms is a highly valuable move toward the psychology of conference participants. The project’s ability to reconnect with the river shows tactful urban design, especially with the remaining interstate adjacency.”
